    Exclamation how to check a folder size in terminal?

    hi,
    when i want to check a folder size in i the terminal with du, it first list all the files sizes within the folder, then in the last the folder size itself, is there any other command to just display the folder size not the files sizes?
    Want to share my experiences with other newbies:

    You can use
    du -s <folder-name>

    du -sh <folder-name> will give you the same output in higher units

    du -sh /tmp/

    Make sure you leave the trailing slash, otherwise it will give you all the contents.
