Though I don't believe that ll is in the "Official Unix Command
Dictionary", I have found it to be a very common "alias" for the "ls -l"
command at Unix sites where I have worked. It is so common that I was
miffed when we migrated to a Unix box here (some time ago) and it
wouldn't work by default. I needed to actually do some work for a
change and set up an alias, myself.
Best of luck to all in their pursuit of SAS on Unix servers!
I hope that this suggestion proves helpful now, and in the future!
