@section Why do I get these strange escape sequences when I run
@code{ls} from the Shell mode?
@cindex Escape sequences in @code{ls} output
@cindex @code{ls} in Shell mode
This happens because @code{ls} is aliased to @samp{ls --color} in your
shell init file. You have two alternatives to solve this:
@itemize @bullet
@item
Make the alias conditioned on the @code{EMACS} variable in the
environment. When Emacs runs a subsidiary shell, it exports the
@code{EMACS} variable with the value @code{t} to that shell. You can
unalias @code{ls} when that happens, thus limiting the alias to your
interactive sessions.
@item
Install the @code{ansi-color} package (bundled with Emacs 21.1 and
later), which converts these ANSI escape sequences into colors.
