This question already has an answer here:
Every once in a while I have to list some files (~20-50) in Bash on Linux || Mac.
These files are from four different file types.
ls nand2tetris/myChips/ And16.**hdl** And16.**cmp** And16.**tst** And16.**out** ....
Is it possible to colorize every file type in a different color, without changing the formatting? I still want to have the standard
ls multi column, multi row output, not the kind of formatting that
ls -l presents.
If the solution to the problem is a different technique from distribution to distribution, it would be nice to collect as many solutions as possible in this thread.
