	#Get the all files and folders in the given directory.
	my  @ both = glob("*");

	my  @ folders;
	foreach my $items ( @ both) {
		if(-d $items) { #Get all folders into another array - so that first the files will appear and then the folders.
			push( @ folders else { #If it is a file just put it into the final array.
			push( @ all,$item my $this_folder ( @ folders) {

I have created a few files using windows and hidden those. Now I am trying to run UBANTU from Virtual Machine and want to use the commands to see the hinned files only. ls - a is not working. It gives files without "dot" even if this is hidden. Please suggest

ls -a|grep "^\."

ls -a|grep "^\." this command is not working
linux
ls -A via the manpage: "do not list implied . and .." lists all files and folders in the directory ls -A | grep "^\." lists only hidden files and folders ls -A --file-type | grep "/$" | grep "^\." lists only hidden directories ls -A --file-type | grep -v "/$" | grep "^\." lists only hidden files

ls -lrt .*

Most of the hidden files are text files so any text editor like "vim" or "nano" will display the text to you. You can also use the command
"cat .foofile | less" to see it displayed within console.
