I often deal with long file names and the 'ls -l' command leaves very little room for file names. An alternative is to use the -h -o and -g flags (or together, -hog).
* The -h flag produces human-readable file size (e.g. 91K instead of 92728)
* The -o suppresses the owner column
* The -g suppresses the group column
Since I use to alias ll='ls -l', I now do alias ll='ls -hog'
There are 3 alternatives - vote for the best!
