in reply to GB, MB, KB and on..

how about something like this?
sub prettyBytes { my $size = $_[0]; foreach ('b','kb','mb','gb','tb','pb') { return sprintf("%.2f",$size)."$_" if $size < 1024; $size /= 1024; } }

      i actually wrote that after i posed the question. its better than what i first tried.

    Fix if size is larger than PB. <code> sub prettyBytes { my $size = $_[0]; foreach ('b','kb','mb','gb','tb','pb') { last if $size < 1024; $size /= 1024; } return sprintf("%.2f",$size)."$_"; } <code>

      This does not work as expected as the value of $_ is undefined outside of the loop.
