NAME            stat  --  get file status

SYNOPSIS        sys stat; name; buf  / stat = 18.

DESCRIPTION     name points to a null-terminated string naming a

                file; buf is the address of a 34(10) byte buffer

                into which information is placed concerning the

                file.  It is unnecessary to have any permissions

                at all with respect to the file, but all directo-

                ries leading to the file must be readable.

                After stat, buf has the following format:

                buf, +1         i-number

                +2,+3           flags (see below)

                +4              number of links

                +6,+7           size in bytes

                +8,+9           first indirect block or contents block


                +22,+23         eighth indirect block or contents block

                +24,+25,+26,+27 creation time

                +28,+29,+30,+31 modification time

                +32,+33         unused

                The flags are as follows:

                   100000  used (always on)

                   040000  directory

                   020000  file has been modified (always on)
