Format 'ls' output into verbose, human readable output

Project description

Verbose ls

This package aims to make the output of ls a little more readable and verbose.

Note: This package should work on Linux, but has only been tested on Mac OS (Mojave).

For example, the permissions for owner, group, and other users can be hard to read in the first 9 slots. And for someone new to ls it may not be obvious what the other output means.

For example, for the setup.py in this package:

ls -l setup.py

-rw-r--r--  1 scottnelson  staff  406 Dec 26 20:30 setup.py

This util adds descriptions for each column, and expands the output to make it more clear what it means.
