HISTORY

I wanted to re-arrange the ls output just like one can do with the -printf option to GNU find. Sadly, there are no -printf option available for ls, so I threw together a quick hack called 'pilsner' that did what I wanted and nothing more, nothing less. Not very useful to others.

Mattias Svanström crafted together the 'l' application which did basically the same thing but more elegant and with a nice twist; it calculated relative mtimes.

I really liked that idea, but there were a couple of annoyances, so I forked the project and added a configuration file, support for flags that'll control the different views and possibility to ignore as well as highlight specific files.
