Revisiting your two posts, you are commenting on two different places
on the web page.

First post Date: Mon, 30 Apr 2018 15:15:41 -0500:

GNU coreutils online help: <http://www.gnu.org/software/coreutils/>

Second post Date: Thu, 3 May 2018 09:27:52 -0500:

Full documentation at: <http://www.gnu.org/software/coreutils/ls> 

Perhaps the fact that "coreutils" happens to end with "ls" confuses
the eye.
