dir (directory) is a command used for computer file and directory listing, specifically in the command line interface (CLI) of the operating systems CP/M, MP/M, DOS, OS/2, Singularity, Microsoft Windows, ReactOS, AROS and in the DCL command line interface used on VMS, RT-11 and RSX-11.
dir is not a Unix command; Unix has the analogous
ls command instead. The Linux operating system, however, has a
dir command that "is equivalent to
ls -C -b; that is, by default files are listed in columns, sorted vertically, and special characters are represented by backslash escape sequences".
