Linux Tip: ls with inode number

The common ‘ls’ command will allow you to display the inode numbers associated with each file in the directory. All that’s needed is supplying the ‘-i’ option.

> ls -i

26610614 file1.txt  26610615 file2.jpg  26610616 file3.html

It will display the inode number right next to the file.
