Name

bigfiles - list the largest files under these directories

Bigfiles recursively scans directory for file sizes, keeping track of the biggest files. At the end of the scan, it wites the size and file names of the biggest 'nn' files.  

Arguments

-nn Limit the listing to the biggest nn files (100 is the default and maximum)

-s Restrict search to the same file system as first directory.

directory Examine these directories. Several may be specified. If no directories are specified, filenames are read from stdin. This allows input to be piped from a program such as find.
