ls man reads:
-l <skip> *If the output is to a terminal, a total sum for all the file sizes is output on a line before the long listing.*
But I have found that ls consistently put "total" in a first line even if output is piped or redirected. As an example:
ls -l | cat
Is it bug or I missed something?
