Color setup for 'ls', outputs a sequence of shell commands to set up the terminal for color output from 'ls' (and 'dir', etc.).
Syntax eval 'dircolors [options]... [file]'
If FILE is specified, 'dircolors' reads it to determine which colors
to use for which file types and extensions. Otherwise, a precompiled
database is used. For details on the format of these files, run 'dircolors --print-database'.
The output is a shell command to set the 'LS_COLORS' environment variable. You can specify the shell syntax to use on the command line, or 'dircolors' will guess it from the value of the 'SHELL' environment variable.
Options -b --sh --bourne-shell Output Bourne shell commands. This is the default if the 'SHELL' environment variable is set and does not end with 'csh' or 'tcsh'. -c --csh --c-shell Output C shell commands. This is the default if 'SHELL' ends with 'csh' or 'tcsh'. -p --print-database Print the (compiled-in) default color configuration database. This output is itself a valid configuration file, and is fairly descriptive of the possibilities.
