Silly ls question


I am trying to make ls show file sizes in mega bytes, so far I am doing:

[root@thor backup]# ls -al --block-size=2048

total 11120
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jan 9 2003 .
drwxr-xr-x 20 root root 4096 Jul 15 04:03 ..
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 22733488 Jul 15 04:03 dom.tar.gz

But the dom.tar.gz file is still not showing as MB, what am I doing wrong?

Thanks

Thank you!

One mor little thing... How can I create an alias so that when I type "ls" it actions "ls -alh" .

I've tried "man alias" but it isn't very helpful.

Thanks

If you know where to set your alias:
alias ls='ls -alh'

Usually that's in:
~/.bashrc

COol
