WC(1)WC(1)NAMEwc - word count
SYNOPSISwc [ -lwrbc ] [ file ... ]
Wc counts lines, words, runes, syntactically-invalid UTF codes and
bytes in the named files, or in the standard input if no file is named.
A word is a maximal string of characters delimited by spaces, tabs or
newlines. The count of runes includes invalid codes.
If the optional argument is present, just the specified counts (lines,
words, runes, broken UTF codes or bytes) are selected by the letters l,
w, r, b, or c. Otherwise, lines, words and bytes (-lwc) are reported.
Wc should have options to count suboptimal UTF codes and bytes that
cannot occur in any UTF code.
