Thats from the help (ls --help), try "man ls" and read the manual
page and you will get full information, you can also read the info
page (info ls).

Well, it is the same on my Mandriva linux man ls page. :(

info ls will help if the OP has it installed. If not here.


`-l'
`--format=long'
`--format=verbose'
In addition to the name of each file, print the file type,
permissions, number of hard links, owner name, group name, size,
and timestamp ( Formatting file timestamps), normally the
modification time.
