Asking ls to only list files in a path that match a specific glob/regex

http://unix.stackexchange.com – In Zsh: Is there a way to use ls to only list files and folders in the current directory that match a specific globbing or regex pattern? For example, say I have multiple files that start with the character #, the following command does not do what I want: ls -l #* I know I can do this with find, i.e. find . "#*" -maxdepth 1 -print, but I am looking for a solution that lists files and folders with permissions in ls. I presume that one way of doing this is by parsing the output of ls (but AFAIK this is usually not recommended). (HowTos)
