Command «sl» ... so you don't make a mistake with «ls»

It should not be just me who writes too fast and the letters are wrong or something like that, this command can be added to the list of 9 very funny and useless Linux commands + combinations that I left recently 😀

First install the package sl:

apt-get install sl (if you use Debian, Ubuntu, MintEtc.)

And voila ... suppose we are in a terminal, and we want to list with ls what contains the directory where we are, but since we write so fast instead of putting ls we put sl ... see what appears in the terminal when they put sl 😉

Greetings and ... another interesting thing about our system hahaha.
