Case Insensitive File Listings

In general, Linux filenames are case-sensitive. So how case you list the files in your current directory in a case-insensitive way? Technically, you are looking to perform case-insensitive globbing. Here are some ways: # touch DEMO demo DeMo # ls -l [Dd][Ee][Mm][Oo] -rw-r–r–. 1 root root 0 Mar 24 11:39 demo -rw-r–r–. 1 root root 0 Mar 24 11:39 DeMo -rw-r–r–. 1 root root 0 Mar 24 11:39 DEMO # ls -l | grep -i demo -rw-r–r–. 1 root root 0 Mar 24 11:39 demo -rw-r–r–. 1 root root 0 Mar 24 11:39 DeMo -rw-r–r–. 1 root root 0 Mar
