This is my stat output on a folder
stat Downloads/ File: `Downloads/' Size: 4096 Blocks: 8
IO Block: 4096 directory Device: fd02h/64770d Inode: 259595
What does it mean by the size of a directory ? I don't think it includes the directory contents. But if it is just a directory and a naming, why does it take up 4096 bytes ?
What is the difference between IO Block and Blocks ? What is actually inode ?
