    Read from the standard input the text that is to be used for
    counting the frequency of words.


    The name of a raw text file to be used to count word frequencies.
    This can actually be a filename, a directory name, or a pattern (as
    understood by Perl's glob() function).  If the value is a directory
    name, then all the files in that directory and its subdirectories will
    be used.

    If you are looking for some interesting files to use, check out

    This option may be given more than once (if more than one file
    should be used).
