A text mode utility to determine disk usage

gt5 shows the disk space used by files and directories within a given parent directory. The view is provided through the terminal. gt5 is portable since it depends on only a few GNU tools. It provides "intelligent cutting" of small files and directories so as to keep results readable. One can easily browse through the subdirectories, using the cursor-keys, optionally gt5 gives links to the files, so you can also browse them directly. It show entries with their size and the percentage of their parent. The results can be saved to a file, for later use.
