In the file below I need to count how many records there are with the text: "MAXRUNALARM" or "JOBFAILURE" in the record. The pipe symbol is ithe record delimiter.

In this case there is a total of 13 records that meet the critieria.

passing the file as an argument you can do this

while(<>) {
        $count++ if /(MAXRUNALARM|JOBFAILURE)/;
}

print $count;
