ls -s | awk -F' ' '{ if ( $1 > 0 ) } { print $2 }'

I believe that "if", both in perl and bash, has an "-s" flag for the size of the file, maybe that will help.

You could just do "find . -size 0c"

Sorry, didn't read your message correctly (coffee machine is broken)

To get files greater than 0 bytes: "find . -size +0c"
