Do a 

  man ls

There, press / (for searching in the manual).

Type -d (the text to search).
Type n twice (for next occurence of the searchtext).

See? The option -d is it.

If your shell is the bash (as I suppose), just press the TAB key
twice. You´ll get a big list of executables in your path. (You can
see what your path is by typing "echo $PATH" (without the quotes).


PS: And get a book on Linux. www.oreilly.com should have a pointer
    to the free version of their latest Debian book.
