in thread Usage of a sparse file

Isn't blocks*blocksize = (stat $file)[11]*512 the actual used size?
$ ls -lh sparse_file -rw-r--r-- 1 aitap aitap 101M Mar 11 20:30 sparse_file $ du -h sparse_file 1,1M sparse_file $ du -B 1 sparse_file 1060864 sparse_file $ perl -E'say ((stat shift)[12]*512)' sparse_file 1060864
Sorry if my advice was wrong.

    Hm, that works. I can grab the blocksize as well, and divide by 8 to get down to 512. Thanks!
