wc — print newline, word, and byte counts for each file
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.
print the byte counts

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