Final Accepted Text
Summary 0001568: sum utility listed as standard utility in spite of its intentional exclusion
Description The historic *sum* utility is noted in the *cksum* rationale and also in the C.3.3 Exclusion of Utilities section with the net effect that *sum* is intentionally not in the standard, yet there are references to it suggesting that it is.
Desired Action Delete line 74286 on page 2307 which lists "sum : Print checksum and block or byte count of a file" from the list of utilities in support of files of arbitrary sizes.

On page 3614, remove references to the sum utility: in particular,

change "The cat, cksum, cmp, cp, dd, mv, sum, and touch utilities" to "The cat, cksum, cmp, cp, dd, mv, and touch utilities" on line 124855, and

change "The cat, cksum, cmp, dd, df, du, ls, and sum utilities" to "The cat, cksum, cmp, dd, df, du, and ls utilities" on line 124857.
