       du  -  summarize disk usage

       du [ -s ] [ -a ] [ name ... ]

       Du  gives the number of blocks contained in all files and (recursively) directories within
       each specified directory or file name.  If name is missing, `.'	is used.

       The optional argument -s causes only the grand total to be given.  The  optional  argument
       -a causes an entry to be generated for each file.  Absence of either causes an entry to be
       generated for each directory only.

       A file which has two links to it is only counted once.

       Non-directories given as arguments (not under -a option) are not listed.
       If there are too many distinct linked files, du counts the excess files multiply.
