comment Why is 'ls' suddenly surrounding items with spaces in single quotes?
Note: this change was introduced in coreutils 8.25 (commit, authored by the same Pádraig as this post). Personally I think that this behavior is suboptimal, it breaks alignment whenever a space occurs in a filename.

comment Determine the size of a block device
The sector size is always 512 bytes according to the source. For the future, I am trying to get this interface documented.

comment Determine the size of a block device
The values reported here are multiples of 1KiB which may be one sector (512 byte) too small.
