I came across the head and wc -l commands in the ecosystem project on command line. Can someone explain the functions of these two commands ?

The wc utility displays the number of lines, words, and bytes contained in each input file , or standard input (if no file is specified) to the standard output. A line is defined as a string of characters delimited by a character. Characters beyond the final charac- ter will not be included in the line count. A word is defined as a string of characters delimited by white space characters. White space characters are the set of characters for which the iswspace(3) function returns true.
