3.2.3 Listing Files (ls)

Now list the file with the ls command to verify that you've created it:

$ ls tempfile

When you enter the ls command by itself, it lists all the files in your current location. If you enter the ls command with a specific file name, it lists only that file, if the file exists.

For more information on the ls(1) command, refer to the man Pages(1): User Commands.
