    If you are using a debian based flavor, you can try:
    apt-get source <package_name>

    "Linux Programming by Example" by Arnold Robbins walks you through the code
    of V7 ls. So, its's not GNU ls, yet should be fine as a start. I got my copy last week
    so I haven't reached that ls chapter yet, but author's comments of ls code seem
    easy to follow.
