(TIL) Nix: Sorted human readable sizes

less than 1 minute read

du -hsc * | sort -h

What each option means for du:

  • h: show sizes in human readable format (1K, 1M, 1G, …)
  • s: summarize: display only a total for each argument
  • c: also display a grand total

The -h option on sort makes it understand the -h format (human readable) on du.
