du-kb2h (921)

du -sk 2 -h

A script which converts the output of du -sk into du -h.

What's the point? Well, this is:

# du -sk * | sort -nr | du-kb2h

By inserting the sort -nr inbetween the du and the output formattng, you can have both a numerically sorted and human-readable output.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
