https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=264420 Bug ID: 264420 Summary: [PATCH] du: Add '-b' flag for displaying bytes Product: Base System Version: CURRENT Hardware: Any OS: Any Status: New Severity: Affects Only Me Priority: --- Component: bin Assignee: bugs@FreeBSD.org Reporter: email@example.com CC: firstname.lastname@example.org Created attachment 234396 --> https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/attachment.cgi?id=234396&action=edit Patch for du -b Adds a '-b' flag to the du(1) utility (in /usr.bin/du) for displaying the total number of bytes in a file/directory, like the coreutils equivalent. I'm doing this simply by separating out a curbytes value from curblocks, and using that for operations when bflag is set. I'm aware the wc(1) utility offers similar functionality with the '-c' flag, but there are a few limitations that that solution carries (e.g. not being able to count total bytes of entire directories recursively). I've updated the manual page (along with adding the '-g' flag to places where it was missing), and also created a new testcase for it. (I have read UPDATING.)
