Bochun Bai commented on HDFS-1788:
----------------------------------

Waiting for HADOOP-7360 is a good idea.
And cat/tail commands is not working, this is the motivation I involved.

I feel sorry about not knowing the assignee is still working on this.
It has been assigned for 50 days, and no more progress published.
Next time I will contact before started, thanks daryn.

> ls FsShell command implementation has been consistent with the linux implementations
of ls \-l. With the addition of symlinks, I would expect the ability to show file type 'd'
for directory, '\-' for file, and 'l' for symlink. In addition, following the linkname entry
for symlinks, I would expect the ability to show "\-> <link target>". In linux, the
default is to the the properties of the link and not of the link target. In linux, '-L' option
allows for the dereferencing of symlinks to show link target properties, but it is not the
default.
