To check if you use the ls cmd in the same path you may use: qsh cmd('which ls')
If it's in a different path you may check your environment: qsh cmd('set')

Changing the environment is done in a .profile file you may find it on user level (qsh cmd('ls ~/.prof*')) or system wide level (qsh cmd('ls /QOpensys/etc/profile'))

Subject: Re: qsh stdout difference per IBM i

Hi Jay,

I was thinking along the same lines as Jack... you've probably got a different version of 'ls' in your PATH or something.

I also notice that your 2nd example includes the full path vs. just the file name, which also seems to indicate you are picking up a different version of ls.

The default mode in 'ls' is actually to print multiple files per line.
If you want just one per line, most 'ls' utilities have a -1 (that's the number 1) switch that can be passed that means "one per line".

So try it like this:

qsh cmd('cd /home/jvaughn/.ssh && ls -1A')

Since it's listing the current directory, it's less likely to give you the paths. And the -1 explicitly tells it to only include one per line.
(-1A is -1=one per line, and -A=include hidden files.)

Also, FWIW, I don't recommend using OVRDBF FILE(STDOUT) in a production program. It's fine for a one-off or just messing around, but... if it's a "real" program, consider piping the output to Rfile to write it to a PF, or use a redirect to write it to a stream file.
