comment What does size of a directory mean in output of 'ls -l' command?
Sure. Let's say each filename has on average 10 characters. Then the storage for 1000 file names alone would take almost 10KB as space. However, it depends also on the file system. Some file systems have limits on the number of files in a directory.
