We don't need to initialize the variable “file”.
On line 34, if (files) is true,
{file = fcheck_files(files, fd)} will be executed on line 38.
On line 34, if (files) is flse,
{return ret;} will be executed on line 54, and seq_show() will exit directly.
I don't find the programming concerns around the handling of the null
pointer for the variable “file”.

If you have other suggestions, please elaborate on the details.
