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


hpls [options] [hfs-path ...] Description 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. Options -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 date. -d List directory entries themselves rather than their contents. Normally the con‐ tents are shown for named directories on the command-line. -i Show the catalogue ID for each entry. Every file and directory on an HFS+ vol‐ ume 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 mod‐ ification (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 ques‐ tion 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 indi‐ cating the nature of the entry; directories are followed by a slash "/" and exe‐ cutable 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.
