filelight \- graphically display disk usage

\fBfilelight\fP allows you to understand exactly where your disk space
is being used by graphically representing your file system as a set
of concentric segmented rings, where each segment subtends an angle
proportional to the disk space occupied by that file or directory.
You can specify a directory to scan on startup at the command line eg:
filelight /home/mxcl
Starting at the root requires a scan of the entire directory tree,
which may take a while.
\fBfilelight\fP is available in Konqueror under \fBView | View Mode | RadialMap View\fP.
