Log ls listing to TEXT/ASCII file NOT XML

I would love to see a way to do:

ls > remotedir.txt

So that the directory listing is saved to a file, remotedir.txt

/log and XML are no good.

/log just adds it to the log with other stuff, I don't need.

XML, don't use it, don't like it, don't want it.

This would make it a simple task to email via sendmail or other function, the ls output for other tasks to users with out adding a XML decoding layer and processing.

Thanks.

Sorry, I'm not going to introduce duplicate functionality, just because you do not like XML...

I don't see XML being a plus when a listing in plain ASCII with CR/LF would be x file equals x lines in the files.

Where as XML has extra wasted noise for <fksddfslfj> <aakjka> All that could have been a file name.

See guide to advanced scripting to learn how to easily extract directory listing from XML log.

Thanks, but my scripting language doesn't handle XML. ASCII no problem.
