SYNOPSIS

stat [\,OPTION\/]... \,FILE\/...

DESCRIPTION

Display file or file system status.

Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too.
-L, --dereference
  follow links
-f, --file-system
  display file system status instead of file status
-c --format=\,FORMAT\/
  use the specified FORMAT instead of the default; output a newline after each use of FORMAT
--printf=\,FORMAT\/
  like --format, but interpret backslash escapes, and do not output a mandatory trailing newline; if you want a newline, include \n in FORMAT
-t, --terse
  print the information in terse form
--help display this help and exit
--version
  output version information and exit
The valid format sequences for files (without --file-system):
%a access rights in octal (note ’#’ and ’0’ printf flags)
%A access rights in human readable form

%n file name
%N quoted file name with dereference if symbolic link
