Is there a way to print only the attributes (size in particular) of a file without showing the filename? file -b * is similar to what I want, but . Maybe there is way of combining ls -hs and file -b?

stat is what you're looking for:

Print size in bytes for all files:

stat --format=%s *

Print file name and size in bytes for all files:

stat --format=%n:%s *
