       -H, --si
	      likewise, but use powers of 1000 not 1024

	      append indicator with style WORD to entry names: none (default),

       -i, --inode
	      print index number of each file

       -I, --ignore=PATTERN

       -R, --recursive
	      list subdirectories recursively

       -s, --size
	      print size of each file, in blocks

       -S     sort by file size

	      extension	 -X,  none -U, size -S, time -t, version -v status -c,
	      time -t, atime -u, access -u, use -u

	      show time as WORD instead of modification time:  atime,  access,
	      use,  ctime  or  status;	use  specified	time  as  sort	key if

       -t     sort by modification time

       -T, --tabsize=COLS
	      assume tab stops at each COLS instead of 8

       -u     sort by last access time; with -l: show atime

       -U     do not sort; list entries in directory order

       -v     sort by version

       -w, --width=COLS
	      assume screen width instead of current value

       -x     list entries by lines instead of by columns

       -X     sort alphabetically by entry extension

       -1     list one file per line

       --help display this help and exit

	      output version information and exit

       By default, color is not used to distinguish types of files.   That  is
       equivalent to using --color=none.  Using the --color option without the
       optional WHEN argument is equivalent  to	 using	--color=always.	  With
       --color=auto,  color  codes  are output only if standard output is con‐
       nected to a terminal (tty).
