       head - output the first part of files


       head [OPTION]... [FILE]...


       Print  the  first  10  lines  of  each  FILE to standard output.  With more than one FILE,
       precede each with a header giving the file name.  With no FILE, or when FILE  is  -,  read
       standard input.

       Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too.

       -c, --bytes=[-]K
              print  the first K bytes of each file; with the leading '-', print all but the last
              K bytes of each file

       -n, --lines=[-]K
              print the first K lines instead of the first 10; with the leading  '-',  print  all
              but the last K lines of each file

       -q, --quiet, --silent
              never print headers giving file names

       -v, --verbose
              always print headers giving file names

       --help display this help and exit

              output version information and exit

       K  may  have  a  multiplier  suffix: b 512, kB 1000, K 1024, MB 1000*1000, M 1024*1024, GB
       1000*1000*1000, G 1024*1024*1024, and so on for T, P, E, Z, Y.
