Help with ls -a


Hi Guyz
When we use the command ls -a we get the output as . .. .preferences action drama comedy genres.txt.
Does the 4 dots mean there are 4 hidden files in our working directory?


The filenames there are separated by space.
Try ls -a1 to get each one on its own line. ls -al would also do that, but print out additional information


what do you need help on
