    Hi.
    By default I've got dir aliased:
    dir=pdir /[!RCS tags *~] /dkm /(dd-m-y th:m) /(zcK) /(35fn) /(a) /(-60i)
    And have colors set for quite a few things. But, for the filetypes that *don't* get a color assigned I get a blank line after. Probably related, the above alias truncates descriptions correctly except for plain line, which just wrap onto the next line. Any ideas?
    Thanks.
    Bill

    When I used your alias and did "dir | list /x" I could see the
    trailing blanks that caused line wrapping / apparent blank lines for
    me. When I made my screen 144 characters wide or wider the blank lines
    went away.

    I also see the blank lines only after files without coloring.
