Details

Summary

When the quite (-q) flag is provided, we don't expect any output.
Currently, the behavior is broken:
$ grep -cq flag util.c
1

$ grep -cs flag util.c
55

First of all, we print a number to stdout. Secondly, it just returns 0 or 1
(which is unexpected). GNU grep with c and q flags doesn't print anything.
