This program runs stat(2) or lstat(2) on each input file and displays the results. By default, stat displays all the attributes returned by stat(2) or lstat(2). Specific attributes can be requested by specifying one of the command-line options.

This utility is inteded to be both command line and output compatible with the utility of the same name on SGI's Irix operating system.
