Print Directory

Replacement for 'ls'

Print Directory (pd) is a command-line utility similar to the GNU ls command. The program will read the current directory or the directories listed on the command line and display the contents showing the "files" first then the "directories".

It was initially written for UNIX before its author came to work for Sun Microsystem in January 1991. It was later ported to GNU/Linux, then was moved to SourceForge for posterity. This package is no longer maintained.


User man page included.
