Best in what sense?
- ls is best combined with grep if you plan on doing any filtering: dir *.txt is equivalent to ls | grep .txt, and dir boogy*.* is equivalent to ls | grep boogy.
What is "best" about this? Ninereasons 20:02, 19 June 2006 (EDT)
grep > simple wildcarding
"best" in the sense that you get far more fine grained control out of piping to grep than you would with the use of simple wildcards.
