SYNOPSIS        wc name  ...

DESCRIPTION     wc provides a count of the words, text lines, and

                control lines for each argument file.

                A text line is a sequence of characters not be-

                ginning with ".", "!" or "'" and ended by a new-

                line.  A control line is a line beginning with

                ".", "!" or "'".  A word is a sequence of charac-

                ters bounded by the beginning of a line, by the

                end of a line, or by a blank or a tab.

                When there is more than one input file, a grand

                total is also printed.
