If a FILE is shorter, it is extended and the extended part (hole)
reads as zero bytes.

The SIZE argument is an integer and optional unit (example: 10K is

(powers of 1000).
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.
