NAME

dus - A simple command line utility for size-sorting files

 

SYNOPSIS

dus [OPTION]... [FILE]...

 

DESCRIPTION

dus lists files and directories according to their size. It computes the said sizes by summing recursively exact file sizes through directories. If a directory has its name appended with '/', it is not listed, but the elements it contains are. If no files or directories are provided as arguments, the current directory is used as default.

 

OPTIONS

-h, --help
print the help and exit
-v, --version
print the version number and exit
-d, --ignore-dots
ignore files and directories whose name starts with a dot
-i, --ignore-protected
do not exit when trying to access files and directories for which we do not have permission
-f, --fancy
display floating point size with K, M and G units
-r, --reverse-order
reverse the sorting order (big to small instead of small to big)
-t, --show-top
show the top of the list instead of the bottom
-c <cols>, --nb-columns <cols>
force the number of columns, -1 means no limit (it is by default no limits if the stdout is not a tty and the tty width otherwise)
-l <lines>, --nb-lines <lines>
same as -c but for the number of lines
-m <size min>, --min-size <size min>
restrict the printing of files and directories to these of size bigger than a lower bound. The size can be specified using the G, M, K, and B units

 

EXAMPLE

dus -m 1M -rt ~/private/

List the largest files and directories present in ~/private/, of sizes greater than 1024kb, sorted in decreasing order.

 

BUGS

None known, probably many though.
