Well, for a mount point, the command that will give you output like 'df -h' for a specific partition is (*ta da*) 'df -h' -- tell it a file or directory and it will tell you all about the partition that lives on: % df -h /tmp Filesystem Size Used Avail Capacity Mounted on /dev/md0 248M 22K 228M 0% /tmp For an arbitrary directory, I assume you want the du(1) style total space usage figures but in the 'human readable' style? 'du -hs' does that if you tell it the directory name: % du -hs /tmp 22K /tmp As others have suggested else thread, there are a variety of cunning find + xargs combinations for generating a list of directories and feeding the list into du(1) automatically. But all this seems to me to be pretty clearly explained in the du(1) and df(1) man pages so I've probably completely misunderstood what you are actually asking for.
