Shrink or extend the size of each FILE to the specified size
A FILE argument that does not exist is created.
If a FILE is larger than the specified size, the extra data is lost.
If a FILE is shorter, it is extended and the extended part (hole)
reads as zero bytes.
Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too.
SIZE may be (or may be an integer optionally followed by) one of following:
KB 1000, K 1024, MB 1000*1000, M 1024*1024, and so on for G, T, P, E, Z, Y.
SIZE may also be prefixed by one of the following modifying characters:
`+’ extend by, `-‘ reduce by, `<‘ at most, `>’ at least,
`/’ round down to multiple of, `%’ round up to multiple of.
