If you set

eval `dircolors /etc/DIR_COLORS`

you also get different colours for file extensions, like .gz, .zip, etc. You
can easily add more extensions like .png, .pdf, .ps, just read /etx/DIR_COLORS.
Those accents are `grave accents` btw., no other will do for some bizarre
reason. That confused me for a long time.

ls -F will also append an indicator (one of */=@|) to special files (dir, link,
exec etc.). My default alias is 'ls -F --color=auto'.
