head -c, -q, and -v are a set of features that are common to most of the different implementations of head including the ksh one that we have as well as the BSDs and the GNU utilities. This implements and documents them for our implementation of head. This is useful for increasing the range of scripts that we can handle that are not strictly portable/only use POSIX/SUS features.
