I've got that far:
wc --files0-from=FILE lets one get the word count of a list of files. Each entry in this list mus be terminated with an ASCII NUL character.
Question: A way to set a terminating character, such as NUL by hand, or something else? I found this here [quoted from the
info wc output]:
… produce a list of ASCII NUL terminated file names is with GNU
find', using its-print0' predicate.
I found somebody saying the each file name is being terminated by an ASCII NUL character. Is it right that this fits to, say the output of
I know, one shouldn't parse
ls, but writing the output into a file to be read by
wc another time would be nice.
