How can I display only Permissions and file names using ls command and how to list all files in a directory including full path, owner, group and permissions for each file?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

you can use GNU find command instead of ls unless you are doing homework

find /path -printf "%f: %p: %u: %g %m (%M) \n" 

check the man page of find more the meaning of those specifiers.

You should actually do it that way

find /path -printf "%f:%p:%u:%g:%m\n"

That way you get also the permissions and each file gets listed on one line.

ls | xargs stat --printf "$(pwd)/%n %U %G %A \n"

This seems to me to be the most direct way to accomplish the result – Leo Simon Jun 27 at 17:11
