    Cross-platform Rust rewrite of the GNU coreutils

    It was head and cut that were found to be performing better. Few commands in the coreutils have so many options as ls—though it seems most of the switches would be simple to implement and it does seem to have implemented an impressive amount of options: https://github.com/uutils/coreutils/blob/dfc661e8b53501b6fd0f544c63a07631ef4ac510/src/uu/ls/src/ls.rs#L716 . And then their own tests for ls: https://github.com/uutils/coreutils/blob/main/tests/by-util/test_ls.rs . The tests are then used for generating code coverage reports.
