Ubiquité is correct that what you want is not supported in bash. However, you can use the netrw support in vim 7 to browse directories!
alias v="vim ."
A directory listing will show up. Now you can do the following:
j/k to go up & down
- Place cursor on a dir & press
enter to explore it
- Place cursor on a file & press
enter to edit it
- to go up a dir
D to delete a file or dir
R to rename a file or dir
s to change the sorting of items (name, time, size)
d to create a dir
i to cycle between listing formats (thin, long, wide, tree)
Ctrl-l to refresh a directory listing
You can do a lot more with netrw too! It can be used for remote file browsing over ssh. For more info, check the help file with F1.
