Checking the total size of all files from a particular date

Hi

I have some set of files for a particular date. What is the command that I need to put in for finding the total size of all the files for that particular date. The following command is fetching me the size of all individual files seperately

Code:
du -h *20101010*
 
16M file1.20101010
120K file2.20101010
181M file3.20101010
1K file4.20101010
6.9M file5.20101010

How can I find the total size. Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks
# 2  
Code:
du *20101010* | awk '{ T += $1 } END { print T }'

This will print blocks, not KB/MB/GB, I'll try and fix that.
# 3  
Thanks for letting me know that. Is there any way that I can get in KB/MB/GB?
# 4  
Try du -hc <files>
# 5  
Code:
du -hc *201010* | tail -1 | awk '{print $1}'

# 6  
If you're using awk, you don't need tail.

Code:
du -hc *201010* | awk '{ L=$1 } END { print L }'

# 7  
This is what I have got
Code:
du: illegal option -- c
