    One possibility:

    ls | cat -n | sed -e 's/^ *//' -e 's/<tab>/-/'

    Where there is an actual tab character in the second -e expression.

    Do you mean just to number them, or to _rename_ them with the
    numbers?
    Just numbering:
    ls | nl

    Renaming: (this should work in in bourne-type shells)
    let i=0
    for file in * ; do
    let i=i+1
    mv "$file" "$i-$file"
    done
