Re: Color-ls package nearly ready for release, but I need...
Now that I'm home from work, I took a look, and I was mistaken
about vdir and the other files. Vdir, dir, d, v, and ls are all hard
linked together. the aliases just incorporate the $LS_OPTIONS shell
variable into the picture, for example vdir is aliased to /bin/ls
$LS_OPTIONS --format=long, so that all of the aliased ls commands use
color, but /bin/vdir circumventing the alias, does work, just without any
color. The dircolors program echoes 9 lines, aliasing the 5 ls commands
to use $LS_OPTIONS, one to set LS_OPTIONS, another to set LS_COLORS='',
presumably so that it would default to /etc/DIR_COLORS, and 2 lines
exporting the LS_ variables.
