How to view/list only directories in Linux?
This is a small post for Linux new babies. Viewing folders can be achieved by two ways in linux/unix
- Through ls command
- Through find command
With ls we have to use grep to get the directory listings..
Ls –l | grep ^d

Through find command
find . -type d
The above command will show you all the file types which are directories in present working directory.
