LARGES FILES MORE FLAVORS


Recently a single line
script was posted to UGU
to list the largest files
in a filesystem in order
of descending size.
The script worked as posted
on AIX but required tweaking
for SCO OSR5 and UW7.
Here 'tis for your
edification and enjoyment:

OSR5:
find $1 -type f -size +2048 -xdev -exec ls -s {} | /bin/sort -brut " "

UW7:
find $1 -type f -size +2048 -xdev -exec ls -s {} + | /bin/sort -nr

I placed the script in
/usr/local/bin and removed
the pipe to "more" in the
published version to allow
redirection to a file. I
also arbitrarily added the
"-size +2048" to the find
command to limit the list
to files of 1 Mb or larger;
you may modify or remove as
desired.

Thank you,
Lucky Leavell
