Which program do I use to see my free hard drive space?

Which linux executable deals with reporting disk space usage, free disk space and anything to do with hard drive space management?

% /dev
tmpfs           7.9G  1.9M  7.9G   1
% /dev/shm
tmpfs           7.9G  8.7M  7.9G   1
% /run
tmpfs           7.9G     0  7.9G   0
% /sys/fs/cgroup
/dev/dm-0        77G   21G   53G  28% /
tmpfs           7.9G  2.8M  7.9G   1% /tmp
