       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.  With no FILE, or when FILE is -, read
       standard  input.   A  word  is a non-zero-length sequence of characters
       delimited by white space.  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 length of the longest line

       -w, --words
              print the word counts

       --help display this help and exit

              output version information and exit
