I find it useful, when cleaning up deleting unwanted files to make more space, to list in size order so I can delete the largest first.
Note that using "q" shows files with non-printing characters in name.
In this sample output (above), I found two copies of the same iso file both of which are immediate "delete candidates" for me.
I know this sucks in some way but if someone can improve it please be my guest
Found this one little more for me. This one removes the perl dependency (from command 2535).
