Php convert filesizes to bytes kb mb gb

What?
Just a quick note on how to format a given filesize and to reduce the display output to a small string, eg:

  1.  196 bytes          : displays as => "196 bytes" 
  2.     12945 bytes        : displays as => "12 Kb" 
  3.     1478515 bytes      : displays as => "1 Mb" 
  4.     8798745455 bytes   : displays as => "8 Gb" 

How?

  1.  function formatSizeUnits($bytes
  2.      { 
  3.          if ($bytes >= 1073741824) 
  4.          { 
  5.              $bytes = number_format($bytes / 1073741824, 2) . ' GB'
  6.          } 
  7.          elseif ($bytes >= 1048576) 
  8.          { 
  9.              $bytes = number_format($bytes / 1048576, 2) . ' MB'
  10.          } 
  11.          elseif ($bytes >= 1024) 
  12.          { 
  13.              $bytes = number_format($bytes / 1024, 2) . ' KB'
  14.          } 
  15.          elseif ($bytes > 1) 
  16.          { 
  17.              $bytes = $bytes . ' bytes'
  18.          } 
  19.          else 
  20.          { 
  21.              $bytes = '0 bytes'
  22.          } 
  23.   
  24.          return $bytes
