       fsview - a filesystem viewer that graphically shows disk usage


       fsview [ generic-options ] [ folder ]


       FSView is a tool for showing disc utilization in a graphical form, much
       like the UNIX  command  'du'.   The  visualisation  type  chosen  is  a
       treemap.   Each  directory  is represented by a rectangle whose area is
       proportional to its size.  Each directory  rectangle  contains  smaller
       rectangles for its contents, and so on down.

       FSView  is provided both as a Konqueror plugin for viewing directories,
       and as a standalone executable.

       This application is part of the official KDE add-ons module.


       Below are the fsview-specific options.  For a full summary of  options,
       run fsview --help.

       folder View the filesystem starting from this folder.


       du(1), kdirstat(1), konqueror(1).

       For  a  full featured graphical 'du', see KDirStat.  It's quite similar
       to FSView, but allows for lot of cleanup actions.
