NAME
       stat - display file or file system status

SYNOPSIS
       stat [OPTION] FILE...

DESCRIPTION
       Display file or file system status.

       -L, --dereference
	      follow links

       -Z, --context
	      print the security context information if available

       -f, --file-system
	      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-
	      put  a  mandatory	 trailing  newline.   If  you  want a newline,
	      include \n in FORMAT.

       --help display this help and exit
