Counting lines

Post by othni »

I have a couple of big files that I need to count how many lines start with a specified text.

I only need the count, not the output if that is possible. One of the files is 4Gb.

Thank you

Easy. Use a Special Menu\Retain lines\Retain matching lines (grep) filter.

Set the pattern to what you want to count e.g.

^starts_with

Click the option 'Output count of matches'

You'll need to purchase TextPipe to process a file that large.

Thank you very much. I figure out the filter, except for the 'Output Count of Matches' option.

I have a registered version of Texpipe Pro

Thank you again
