    Linux source code

    I wanna see how is the source code of ls and more program in linux. I hope as Linux is open source, I would be able to find it on the net. I tried googling, but I don't get source code. Anyone could provide me a link?

    What linux do you have if you installed everything it should be in your box somewhere.

    Look here for the file-utils package:
    http://www.gnu.org/software/fileutils/fileutils.html
    and for the core-utils:
    http://www.gnu.org/software/coreutils/coreutils.html
    ls is in file-utils and core-utils containts that package.

    My linux is SuSe9 Professional. Please tell me where could I find source code.

    You misunderstood. The links you gave me show how to use ls. That is like man page. I want to see how ls had been written. I want to see source code of ls.

    No, those pages do get you to download. The GNU site is very wordy, because they try to make each page do a lot of things.

    Read the entire page - look for the word download highlighted as a link.

    He is right, look here for an exact link
    http://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/coreutils...s-5.2.1.tar.gz
    Now just untar and ungunzip it, then have fun finding what you need.
