Simple and straightforward large files finder utility for *nix, optimize for human.

Why?

There are workarounds about how to do it on *nix, for instance is using combination of find, du, sort, head.

find /your/directory -xdev -type f -exec du -sh {} ';' | sort -rh | head -n10
# will printout the top 10 largest files size within given directory

But I'm to lazy to memorize them all :sweat_smile: I need a simpler solution instead!

# my way
lff /your/directory

Benchmark

I simple benchmarking with time, with searching the top largest files within moderate Java project directory and about 11.901 files:

# with: find, du, sort, head
find /my/project/directory -xdev -type f -exec du -sh {} ';'  6.63s user 14.03s system 85% cpu 24.131 total
sort -rh  0.08s user 0.07s system 0% cpu 24.145 total
head -n10  0.00s user 0.00s system 0% cpu 24.141 total
# with: lff
./lff /my/project/directory  0.05s user 0.25s system 92% cpu 0.328 total

It is faster!

NOTE: Benchmarking is run on MBP2018 13" OSX 10.15.4.
