Is there a keyboard shortcut for the ls command besides the alias l? I mean something like: Ctrl l for clear command. One advantage, IMO, is that will not get in history list.


You can use bind to create a new keybinding, for example:

bind '"\C-g":"ls\n"'

Now press Control-g to invoke ls. However, ls will still be saved in history. You can add it to HISTIGNORE though.
