Re: Mc Digest, Vol 64, Issue 10

Yes ok, I supose it does become a problem as file
sizes increase.  Since we've still only got 10 fingers,
and 26 letters and decreasing intellectual output, I see
little reason for files to increase.  Except if they
encapsulate mult-files or are big data-sets.
A more important/necessary use of ls is to see it 2 files
are EXACTLY the same size, than rounding [ambigiously] to K.

I think you already KNOW that/why extensions/mods have potential
problems. google: Design by committee ? Parkinson's law/s ?

Following user's quirky requests for eg.
* ls -lh type format

I don't want to insist, but could you explain me why/how this is quirky
and will likely lead to disaster? If it were a choosable option, I
could see only benefits from it.

btw maybe I didn't explain myself correctly, but I meant ls -lh type
format *only* for file's sizes, which are now expressed only in
kilobyte (or kilobit, sorry I confuse everytime) and thus big files
(several gigas) are, for me, a problem. I'd rather know a file is
approxiamtely 21Gb than 22011791872 kilobit/byte, or 698Mb rather than
