Abstract                : Syntax
                               stat [-name] [-dev] [-ino] [-mode]  [-nlink]  [-uid]  [-gid]

                          Often in shell scripts it is useful to have some 
                          detail of a file, e.g. size or modification data.
                          stat provides details from the stat system call in
                          a way driven from the command arguments. (Like an assembler form of ls).
                          
                          Also ustat returns file system statistics.
