need help with load word

trying to load a file into a variable, always get this error:
    
files: load %testytest
** Syntax Error: Invalid integer -- 12M
** Near: (line 1) total 12M
    
testytest is just the output of the ls command of a directory. it starts like this:
    
total 12M
1.8M -rw-rw-r-- 1 1.8M Feb 7 14:41 Screenshot_20220207_144100.png
2.4M -rw-rw-r-- 1 2.4M Feb 8 01:35 Screenshot_20220208_013501.png
...
    
I want this to be a block. I somehow did it before, but changed some things and now I can't do it again.

when I did it before, if I ran the command probe files/6 it would return Feb

the directory is just a bunch of pictures. the full ls command is "ls -lshog ./testing > testytest" I want that output file which is just a list of what's in the directory to be the block 'files

"12M" is not a valid REBOL value, as the error message says. You can't parse this format just with LOAD.
    
You could write a parser for it with PARSE, or you could do some preprocessing to make it valid REBOL, so you could use LOAD after that.

But why don't you just use "read %."?
