   sumfile: sum of file sizes

   sumfile(input: in, output: out)

   input:  the input to this program should be from the Unix command:
       du -s ~/_*
      (where the underscore should be removed; it is there to avoid
       a stupid compiler bug!!)
   output: The output is three columns:
      first column is the first column of the input, the size in kb of
         the various files
      second column is the running sum of the first column
      third column is the same as the second column of the input, the
         names of the files.

   The program allows one to find out how many files will fit onto a tape.

   An example of the use of this form is module describe.lister

   see the man page for du.
