Hi Pádraig,  Thanks for following along and writing.

The reasoning is similar.  They are missing the files only counterpart.
-F and -D would be good short forms.  I left those out because I envisioned 
bringing similar functionality (with same invocation) to cp and ls.
Unfortunately ls already has -D and -F, and the use case for ls was not clear 
to me.  But if there is a good case for ls having this functionality, then 
perhaps -F and -D are not ideal.

Apologies, I didn’t know about the discussion.  I was itching to take a deep 
dive into Linux commands as a break from a way too deep dive into Docker
