Someone I know needs to delete a couple of files that are causing problems on a Mac and couldn't locate them so he asked me. The old Linux skills came in handy and I was able to locate the files straight away by cding to them in Terminal. I would like to see the extension of one of the files in particular but it's not visable. Unfortunately, my Terminal skills are still fairly limited (I'm learning) and not being a native geek, I still can't make head nor tail of the instructions in 'Man.' The upshot is that I would like to see the extension of the file that needs deleting just to be sure, and I don't know how to craft the command. Mac forum users are generally accustomed to doing things in the GUI and terminal operations are often foreign to them so it's not much use to ask in the Mac forums. So, what I need to know is, how would you shape an "ls" command that will also reveal the file extentions? Many thanks folks.
