To avoid these typos, you might want to look at using the proper coreutils tool
dircolors, copy its default config file /etc/defaults/etc/DIR_COLORS to
~/.dircolors, customize it, and use it, e.g.:
# enable color support of ls and also add handy aliases
if [ -x /usr/bin/dircolors ]; then
test -r ~/.dircolors && eval "$(dircolors -b ~/.dircolors)" \
|| eval "$(dircolors -b)"
alias ls='ls --color=auto' # classify files in colour
alias dir='dir --color=auto'
alias vdir='vdir --color=auto'
Check out the other defaults in /etc/defaults/etc/ for other shell profile
stanzas and tools you can use in your profiles.
Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
