DU(1)                                 FSF                                DU(1)

       du - estimate file(1,n) space usage

       du [OPTION]... [FILE]...

       Summarize disk usage of each FILE, recursively for directories.

       -a, --all
              write(1,2) counts for all files, not just directories

       --block-size=SIZE use SIZE-byte blocks

       -b, --bytes
              print size in(1,8) bytes

       -c, --total
              produce a grand total

       -D, --dereference-args
              dereference PATHs when symbolic link(1,2)

       -h, --human-readable
              print sizes in(1,8) human readable format (e.g., 1K 234M 2G)

       -H, --si
              likewise, but use powers of 1000 not 1024

       -k, --kilobytes
              like --block-size=1024

       -l, --count-links
              count sizes many times if(3,n) hard linked

       -L, --dereference
              dereference all symbolic links

       -m, --megabytes
              like --block-size=1048576

       -S, --separate-dirs
              do not include size of subdirectories

       -s, --summarize
              display only a total for each argument

       -x, --one-file-system
              skip directories on different filesystems

       -X FILE, --exclude-from=FILE
              Exclude files that match any pattern in(1,8) FILE.

              Exclude files that match PAT.

              print the total for a directory (or file(1,n), with --all) only if(3,n) it
              is  N  or  fewer  levels  below  the  command   line   argument;
              --max-depth=0 is the same as --summarize

       --help display this help and exit(3,n,1 builtins)

              output version(1,3,5) information and exit(3,n,1 builtins)
