Request a perl to count matched patterns in a file. Is one-liner possible? The environment is ms windows. For example,
in test.txt,

aa bb 12 32 24 bc d1 ff f0 cc
24 bc d1 99 0f cd ab db ea 12
12 23 34 45 54 55 21 78 34 89
cd ae de ef ca cb da 24 bc d1
cd 24 bc d1 24 bc d1 ca cb da
.....

Want to count how many pattern "24 bc d1" in this file. Not need to consider the overlapped case such as the line 12 12 12 12 if the matched pattern is "12 12 12".

Something like

my $pattern = '24 bc d1';
$/ = undef;
my $text = <>;
my (@words) = $text =~ /$pattern/g;
print @words . "\n";
