You can sort numerically named subdirectories in Linux using the
ls command with the
-v option. Here are the steps:

- Navigate to the parent directory that contains the numerically named subdirectories using the cd command. For example, if the parent directory is /home/user/directory, run the command:
- Use the ls command with the -v option to list the numerically named subdirectories in the desired order. For example, if the subdirectories are named as numbers (e.g., 1, 2, 3, etc.), run the command:
This will display the subdirectories in the numeric order.
-v option is available in most Linux distributions (including Ubuntu, Debian, and CentOS) but may not be supported in older versions or less common distributions.
