Summary 0001149: missing comma in ls -r description
Description −r Reverse the order of the sort to get reverse collating sequence oldest first, or smallest file size first depending on the other options given.

That's 3 cases:

- reverse collating sequence
- older first (with -t)
- smallest file size first (with -S)

There's a missing comma to separate the first two, making for confusing text.
Desired Action Change to:

−r Reverse the order of the sort to get reverse collating sequence, oldest first, or smallest file size first depending on the other options given.


(I'll let the linguists comment on whether a comma is needed before "or" or if "or" is enough to separate the 2 other cases).
