NAME
       wc - word count

SYNOPSIS
       wc [ -lwc ] [ name ... ]

DESCRIPTION
       Wc  counts  lines, words and characters in the named files, or in the standard input if no

       lines.

       If  an  argument  beginning  with  one of ``lwc'' is present, the specified counts (lines,
       words, or characters) are selected by the letters l, w, or c.  The default is -lwc.
