SYNOPSIS
       stat [OPTION]... FILE...

DESCRIPTION
       Display file or file system status.

       -L, --dereference
              follow links

              display file system status instead of file status

       -c  --format=FORMAT
              use  the  specified FORMAT instead of the default; output a new-
              line after each use of FORMAT

       --printf=FORMAT
              like --format, but interpret backslash escapes, and do not  out-

              include \n in FORMAT.

       -t, --terse
              print the information in terse form

       --help display this help and exit
