I know very little about PERL :(

I have list of millions of rows of data. All data values are separated by a comma

I have to count how many rows contain a specific data value

for example

101,102,143,145,146,149
101,102,143,145,147,148
101,102,143,145,147,149
101,102,143,145,148,149
101,102,143,146,147,148
101,102,143,146,147,149
101,103,143,146,148,149
102,103,143,147,148,149
102,103,144,145,146,147
102,104,144,145,146,148
102,104,144,145,146,149
102,104,144,145,147,148

from that sample list, I have to count how many rows have the value 103 for the second data entry, but only if the value in the first column is 101, so for this list the number of rows with 103 in the second data entry where the first value is 101, would be 1

I have a previous script (attached) from "ozo" which counts the rows with particular values in the first column.

Could you alter this script (as it works very fast) to count the number of rows with 103 in the second column only where the value 101 is in the first column ?

Thankyou very much in advance count1.txt

Oh wait, I guess the numbers can be higher than 3 digits? Need to add a comma after 103.

Try

#!/usr/bin/perl
use strict;
use warnings;
open M,"<master.vim" or die "master.vim $!";
my $c=0;
$c+=/^101,103,/ while <M>;
close M;
open C,">count.txt" or die "count.txt $!";
print C "$c\n";
close C;

Sorry, it works on the little list I supplied. The test list I have is 5 million entries. I can accept this answer just now and we can work on the next

It works fine on the large list. unfortunately it is picking up


all values with 101,103

and it is including values further down the list with

101,1034 etc so giving me a false result

I will post another question about this

thankyou
