\'el\ dot

$l. (To be read as \'el\dot )

This is a very infamous but handy and quick command which lists all the hidden files and folders in your current directory. Works both with RHEL4 and RHEL5 as well.

[Debu@DebuTestBox ~]# l.
. .bash_history .bash_profile .cshrc .redhat .swp .Trash .bash_logout .bashrc .ssh .viminfo

Now you probably don't have to use both your hands to press keystrokes for this task :P

Cheers!
