wc - print newline, word, and byte counts for each file


   wc [OPTION]... [FILE]...
   wc [OPTION]... --files0-from=F


   Print newline, word, and byte counts for each FILE, and a total line if
   more than one FILE is specified.  A word is a non-zero-length  sequence
   of characters delimited by white space.

   With no FILE, or when FILE is -, read standard input.

   The  options  below  may  be  used  to select which counts are printed,
   always in the following order: newline, word, character, byte,  maximum
   line length.

   -c, --bytes
          print the byte counts

   -m, --chars
          print the character counts

   -l, --lines
          print the newline counts

          read  input  from the files specified by NUL-terminated names in
          file F; If F is - then read names from standard input

   -L, --max-line-length
          print the maximum display width

   -w, --words
          print the word counts

   --help display this help and exit

          output version information and exit
