    using ls to display size of files

    Hello...

    ls -s displays the size of a file in blocks...

    A file A with 12072 blocks (ls -s), in Nautilus is 12343489 bytes...
    This would mean the block size is: 1022.489148442677269715043074884 bytes

    file B:
    1772 blocks in ls
    nautilus reports it to have 1807751 bytes
    Block size: 1020.175507900677200902934537246 bytes

    So I can say nautilus reports the actual file size, and ls -s the actual disk usage, right?

    now, is there a way of getting the same size being reported by nautilus with ls? it would be quite handy.

    Thanks

    ls -l or if you want the human readable: ls -lh
