How do I make `ls` show file sizes in megabytes?
ls -l --block-size=M will give you a long format listing (needed to actually see the file size) and round file sizes up to the nearest MiB.
If you want MB (10^6 bytes) rather than MiB (2^20 bytes) units, use --block-size=MB instead.
If you don't want the M suffix attached to the file size, you can use something like --block-size=1M. Thanks Stéphane Chazelas for suggesting this.
this does not work on macs
ls -lh is another one that works showing the megs
