'd' is an alternative to 'ls' and its long format output. It optimizes the output to create more space for the filename and reduce the chance of wrap around. On a system with short user/group names it can save as much as 22 spaces for the filename. It also has a --dirs-first option to always print directories before regular files regardless of the current sort option. It allows for system and user configuration files, which can specify several options that are available on the command line, as well as the 'color' option which can completely customize the colorization of output, like ls but in a more convenient configuration file. There is a --tree option to simulate the output of the tree command.
