Daniel,

My knowledge of bash is very limited, but I believe that the -d
conditional checks if a file is a directory. So you could define a
function something like this (the syntax is probably all wrong, but
hopefully it is decipherable):

for file in `ls -1`; do
    if ![ -d file]; then
        printf "$file\n"
    fi
end

Name the function something like "lsfiles" and you're good to go.
