hpls — list the contents of a directory on an HFS+ volume


hpls [options] [hfs-path ...]


hpls is used to list files and directories on an HFS+ volume. If one or more arguments
are given, each file or directory is shown; otherwise, the contents of the current working
directory are displayed.


-1 Each entry appears on a line by itself. This is the default if standard output
is not a terminal.

-a All entries are shown, including "invisible" files. The default is to omit
invisible files.

-c Sort and display entries by their creation date, rather than their modification

-d List directory entries themselves rather than their contents. Normally the
contents are shown for named directories on the command-line.

-i Show the catalogue ID for each entry. Every file and directory on an HFS+
volume has a unique catalogue ID.

-l Display entries in long format. This format shows the entry type ("d" for
directory, "f" for file, "F" for locked file), flags ("i" for invisible), type
and creator (four-character strings) for files only, size (number of items in a
directory or resource and data bytes of a file, respectively), date of last
modification (or creation if the -c flag is given), and name.

-m Display entries in a continuous format separated by commas.

-q Replace special and non-printable characters in displayed filenames with
question marks (?). This is the default when standard output is a terminal.

-r Sort entries in reverse order before displaying.

-s Show the file size for each entry in 1K block units. The size includes blocks
used for both data and resource forks.

-t Sort and display entries by time. Normally files will be sorted by name. This
option uses the last modification date to sort unless -c is also specified.

-x Display entries in column format like -C, but sorted horizontally into rows
rather than columns.

-w width Format output lines suitable for display in the given width. Normally the width
will be determined from your terminal, from the environment variable COLUMNS, or
from a default value of 80.

-C Display entries in column format with entries sorted vertically. This is the
default output format when standard output is a terminal.

-F Cause certain output filenames to be followed by a single-character flag
indicating the nature of the entry; directories are followed by a slash "/" and
executable Macintosh applications are followed by an asterisk "*".

-N Cause all filenames to be output verbatim without question-mark substitution.

-R For each directory that is encountered in a listing, recursively descend into
and display its contents.
