    Use the find command
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    Code:
    ls -al | grep "^drwx"
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    Hammer is always right!! the way that works is the | is called a filter. grep takes what the ls command gives it and does the check on it(of course in regex)
