    You forgot again to put a space between the ls -ld and the file path.

    If those files were recognized as directories, the first dash would be a "d". In other words, you'd see the following: drwxr-xr-x. Thus, those directories aren't actually seen as directories. To the best of my knowledge (I'll let someone chip in if there's a solution), you can't convert files to directories.

    documents is a directory
    (file path) may be a binary file. See it anyway?

    That's what I get.
