Job No.1

Write an application that reads in text files and produces statistics for those files. Here are some requirements:

You should send the program the names of the files as command line arguments.
Display an error message indicating how the program should be used if the user failed to enter any arguments.
Have the program display an error message if a file can not be opened or read, but continue to process the other files.
Count and display the number of lines, words, and characters in each file.
Count the frequency of each alphabetic character in each file and display a list of the top ten letters from each file.
Keep track of all the statistics from each file and print out overall statistics for all of the files together.

String delims = " .?-!,;:\"_+=@$%*()[]{}|\\<>~`";
