Using wc command in Linux, we're getting an unexpected behaviour.
The next command is returning 5 chars:
$ echo "TEST" | wc -m
The same behaviour is returned using the following command:
$ echo "TEST" | wc -c
Put the text in a file doesn't change the result.
If we type,
$ echo "TEST" | wc -L
the result is 4.
What the hell is happening?
Francisco Tena.

Tha's correct, since the 'echo' is outputting 5 characters:
T, E, S, T, and newline.
