hi sheetbird,
thanks for your answer it does what i'm after.. how do i get the path name of the file to display aswell as the file name..

getting the path with ls is not possible.  I would suggest that you use a perl script.  Here's a quick hack of another script I wrote that will get the file name and the size

use Cwd;
use File::Find;
sub process_file {
($size) = (stat($_))[7];
        my $path = cwd;
        print "$size $path\/$_ \n";
if (!$ARGV[0]){
        die "I need a Directoy as input \n";
find(\&process_file, @ARGV);

Save it as and then you can pipe it to sort as done above

./ <targetdir> | sort -nr|head

The whole thing can be done in perl but I didn't want to spend the time on it if perl is something you don't want to do.
