    does anyone know where I can find documentation regarding linux cli file color coding. Not how to change them but what they mean? Can't find anything on Google. I also have a red blinking square around rc on /etc and have no idea what the hell it means or what the hell I might have done? Ooops...maybe?
    Can't find any documentation on any of this.
    Seems I did an MV command from root to /etc and am thinking I botched something up. Never noticed that blinking red square before....:confused: Thanks in advance,

    LS_COLORS environment variable

    Hi,

    Just had a peek at the env space (just enter the command env) and found the following variable.

    LS_COLORS=no=00:fi=00:di=00;34:ln=00;36:pi=40;33:so=00;35:bd=40;33;01:cd=40;33;01:eek:r=01;05;37;41:mi=01;05;37;41:ex=00;32:*.cmd=00;32:*.exe=00;32:*.com=00;32:*.btm=00;32:*.bat=00;32:*.sh=00;32:*.csh=00;32:*.tar=00;31:*.tgz=00;31:*.arj=00;31:*.taz=00;31:*.lzh=00;31:*.zip=00;31:*.z=00;31:*.Z=00;31:*.gz=00;31:*.bz2=00;31:*.bz=00;31:*.tz=00;31:*.rpm=00;31:*.cpio=00;31:*.jpg=00;35:*.gif=00;35:*.bmp=00;35:*.xbm=00;35:*.xpm=00;35:*.png=00;35:*.tif=00;35:

    The digits no doubt have to do with termcap entries or some such, you can play around with the entries. Eg - I just changed di=00;34 to just 00 - the directory entries are just plain black now instead of dark blue.

    cheers.
