NAME
       du - estimate file space	usage

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

DESCRIPTION
       Summarize disk usage of each FILE, recursively for directories.

       Mandatory  arguments  to	 long  options are mandatory for short options
       too.

       -a, --all
	      write counts for all files, not just directories

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

       -b, --bytes
	      print size in bytes

       -c, --total
	      produce a	grand total

       -D, --dereference-args
	      dereference FILEs	that are symbolic links

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

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

       -k     like --block-size=1K

       -l, --count-links
	      count sizes many times if	hard linked

       -L, --dereference
	      dereference all symbolic links

       -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 FILE.

       --exclude=PATTERN Exclude files that match PATTERN.

       --max-depth=N
	      print the	total for a directory (or file,	with --all) only if 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

       --version
	      output version information and exit

       SIZE may	be (or may be an integer optionally followed by) one  of  fol-
       lowing: kB 1000,	K 1024,	MB 1,000,000, M	1,048,576, and so on for G, T,
       P, E, Z,	Y.

PATTERNS
       PATTERN is a shell pattern (not a regular expression).  The  pattern  ?
       matches	any  one  character, whereas * matches any string (composed of
       zero, one or multiple characters).  For example,	 *.o  will  match  any
       files whose names end in	.o.  Therefore,	the command

	      du --exclude='*.o'

       will skip all files and subdirectories ending in	.o (including the file
       .o itself).
