Unix Tip #4307- December 26, 2012

SORT BY FILE SIZE



Sort a directory / certain files in a directory
by file size (HP-UX):

===================== begin script =======================
#!/bin/ksh
# script Ls
# use 1 : Ls
# use 2 : Ls *
if [ -n "$*" ]
then
ls -1 -al $* | sort -nbk5
else
ls -al | sort -nbk5
fi
===================== end script =========================
