Linux - Sum using awk

Sum a column of file sizes output from an list (ls) command using awk.

ls -lh php*; ls -l php* | awk '{ SUM += $5} END { print SUM/1024/1024 }'

The line above prints the list with 'human' numbers ls -lh
for all files that start with php.
The AWK command sums the fifth column (filesize) of the ls -l (bytes)
and print the result divided by 1024 to give the megabytes total.
