CentOS 7.0 - man page for numfmt (centos section 1)

NUMFMT(1)				  User Commands 				NUMFMT(1)

NAME
       numfmt - Convert numbers from/to human-readable strings

SYNOPSIS
       numfmt [OPTION]... [NUMBER]...

DESCRIPTION
       Reformat NUMBER(s), or the numbers from standard input if none are specified.

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

       --debug
	      print warnings about invalid input

       -d, --delimiter=X
	      use X instead of whitespace for field delimiter

       --field=N
	      replace the number in input field N (default is 1)

       --format=FORMAT
	      use printf style floating-point FORMAT; see FORMAT below for details

       --from=UNIT
	      auto-scale input numbers to UNITs; default is 'none'; see UNIT below

       --from-unit=N
	      specify the input unit size (instead of the default 1)

       --grouping
	      use locale-defined grouping of digits, e.g. 1,000,000 (which means it has no effect
	      in the C/POSIX locale)

       --header[=N]
	      print (without converting) the first N header lines; N defaults to 1 if not  speci-
	      fied

       --invalid=MODE
	      failure mode for invalid numbers: MODE can be: abort (default), fail, warn, ignore

       --padding=N
	      pad  the	output	to  N  characters;  positive  N will right-align; negative N will
	      left-align; padding is ignored if the output is wider than N;  the  default  is  to
	      automatically pad if a whitespace is found

       --round=METHOD
	      use METHOD for rounding when scaling; METHOD can be: up, down, from-zero (default),
	      towards-zero, nearest

       --suffix=SUFFIX
	      add SUFFIX to output numbers, and accept optional SUFFIX in input numbers

       --to=UNIT
	      auto-scale output numbers to UNITs; see UNIT below

       --to-unit=N
	      the output unit size (instead of the default 1)

       --help display this help and exit

       --version
	      output version information and exit

   UNIT options:
       none   no auto-scaling is done; suffixes will trigger an error

       auto   accept optional single/two letter suffix:

	      1K = 1000, 1Ki = 1024, 1M = 1000000, 1Mi = 1048576,

       si     accept optional single letter suffix:

	      1K = 1000, 1M = 1000000, ...

       iec    accept optional single letter suffix:

	      1K = 1024, 1M = 1048576, ...

       iec-i  accept optional two-letter suffix:

	      1Ki = 1024, 1Mi = 1048576, ...

       FORMAT must be suitable for printing one floating-point	argument  '%f'.   Optional  quote
       (%'f)  will  enable  --grouping	(if  supported	by current locale).  Optional width value
       (%10f) will pad output. Optional negative width values (%-10f) will left-pad output.

       Exit status is 0 if all input numbers were successfully	converted.   By  default,  numfmt
       will stop at the first conversion error with exit status 2.  With --invalid='fail' a warn-
       ing is printed for each conversion error and the exit status is 2.  With  --invalid='warn'
       each  conversion  error	is  diagnosed, but the exit status is 0.  With --invalid='ignore'
       conversion errors are not diagnosed and the exit status is 0.

EXAMPLES
	      $ numfmt --to=si 1000

	      -> "1.0K"

	      $ numfmt --to=iec 2048

	      -> "2.0K"

	      $ numfmt --to=iec-i 4096

	      -> "4.0Ki"

	      $ echo 1K | numfmt --from=si

	      -> "1000"

	      $ echo 1K | numfmt --from=iec

	      -> "1024"

	      $ df | numfmt --header --field 2 --to=si
	      $ ls -l | numfmt --header --field 5 --to=iec
	      $ ls -lh | numfmt --header --field 5 --from=iec --padding=10
	      $ ls -lh | numfmt --header --field 5 --from=iec --format %10f
