In C-Shell, how can I get the same output as du -sh ./* but without listing the files in the root dir, i.e. just a list of subdirectories in ./ and the sizes of all their contents?

I don't get it. I tried sh and csh and except for ordering the output is the same. (I have to admit that I am actually using bash and tcsh.) – Shi Aug 12 '11 at 22:02
@Shi I should clarify: the comment about C-Shell is just to specify what I'm using. I'm seeking another command or options that will give me the same result, but without listing the sizes of the files in ./ – jonnat Aug 12 '11 at 22:13

Add a trailing slash, like:

du -sh ./*/
