Wow, how have I managed to live this long without finding out about
stat? This looks like a great tool -- thanks, Carla!
Now I have a question -- what's up with the number of links to a
directory file? For instance, I tried this:
# stat Mail
Size: 3256 Blocks: 7 IO Block: 4096
Device: 303h/771d Inode: 184799 Links: 3

# find / -inum 184799
What's going on there? There are three links to the directory Mail,
but "find" only finds one.
