Really strange... I did use C Shell on FreeBSD 7-STABLE. % mkdir -p a/dir1/new a/dir1/cur % mkdir -p b/dir1/new b/dir1/cur % mkdir -p c/dir1/new c/dir1/cur % ls -ld */dir1/new drwxr-xr-x 2 poly staff 512 Nov 8 00:57 a/dir1/new/ drwxr-xr-x 2 poly staff 512 Nov 8 00:57 b/dir1/new/ drwxr-xr-x 2 poly staff 512 Nov 8 00:57 c/dir1/new/ > Shell doesn't seem to matter (have tried both tcsh and bash). I did try BASH too, with same result as above - works. The calls to mkdir and ls refer to programs, not to shell internal commands. The only problem could be the * wildcard that the shell would have to expand before calling the actual ls program... -- Polytropon >From Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
