This command lists extended information about files, i.e. whether or not it is a true file or link, who owns it, etc. without having to 'ls' from the specific directory. If you know the filename, but not the location, this helps with finding other information about the file. It can be truncated by creating an alias for 'ls -l'. The sample output shows difference in regular locate vs. ls + locate.
