TOPIC: ls command

ls command 14 years 3 months ago #4833

Hey guys. This is in reference to the ls -l command output. Can someone tell me what the the line total # means?

Example:

$ls -l
total 4
drwxr-xr-x 2 username group 4096 Sep 2 19:25 temp2

Thanks!

Re: ls command 14 years 3 months ago #4843

<total 4> refers to the amount of blocks used by the files on the hard drive. Each block is usually either 512 or 1024 characters.

Welcome... The info was taken from the book "Unix Programming Environment" written by Brian W. Kernighan and Rob Pike (translated in Greek :? ).
It's a good book for reference...
