What do fifth entry of `ls -ld /` implies ?

Aaron Lewis-4
Hi,
        I'm wondering what is the fifth entry of "long format" with ls -ld ,
which i've never cared much about.

        ls -ld /usr/bin
        drwxr-xr-x 2 root wheel 6656 Nov 3 02:21 /usr/bin

        What does 6656 implies here ?

        Many thanks !

That's the size needed to store the directory node.

Thanks Andreas ! And sorry for the delayed reply ,

Before i just didn't quiet understand the meaning of
"the total number of blocks used by the files in the directory" in ls(1) ..

Now i just came to know about inodes stuffs ...
