I am following the snippet here to improve my terminal command in Mac OSX.
It sets the default value of ls results to human readable by exporting
alias ls='ls -GFh' to bash profile file. This is very handy, but occasionally I want to see exact size of a file in bytes (in order to compare it with another file).
How can I do that? is there a command I can use ls with to force it show results in bytes?
Is there other command I can use to get file size?
I thought of
du -s but it would give me just an estimation of used disk space for that file and also minimum size is kilobyte blocks.
