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:
copyraw
196 bytes          : displays as => "196 bytes"
   12945 bytes        : displays as => "12 Kb"
   1478515 bytes      : displays as => "1 Mb"
   8798745455 bytes   : displays as => "8 Gb"
  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?
