Yes by using -i and 256 as the third input, I can generate a few files
whose size is large than 4KB.

Here are the results: Most of the files are still 4KB and not
meaningful, some files whose size are 8KB, but still not meaningful,
i.e., only some unknown and strange contents in those files, only
those pdf files whose size are larger than 8KB are real files, they
are useful files.

Since my partition size is 400GB, I should have far more files than
here, but at two of my machines, extcarve stalled at some step, it
seems the process is still there but it stops generating more files.
