Finding the largest files in a directory

To find the largest files in a directory on a Linux system, you can use ls -lS to order the directory listing by size with the largest files at the top of the list and the smallest at the bottom. The command will show the size of files in bytes, so you may wish to add the h parameter to display file sizes in a more human-readable format, such as kilobytes, megabtyes, etc. depending on the file size, i.e., ls -lSh. Often, you will wish to have the largest files displayed at the bottom of the list. To do so, add the r parameter, i.e., lS -lShr.
$ ls -lShr /usr/lib/xorg/modules
