The code below will count the number of rows, with x in the second column where 105 is the value in the first column,
and list the number of rows with each value for x in the second column.

#!/usr/bin/perl
use strict;
use warnings;
open M,"<master.vim" or die "master.vim $!";
my %c;

 /^105,(\d+)/ &&  $c{$1}++ while <M>;

close M;
open C,">count.txt" or die "count.txt $!";
print C "$c{$_}\n" for sort{$c{$b}<=>$c{$a}}keys %c;
close C;
***********************

 /^101,(\d+)/ &&  $c{$1}++ while <M>;  is the main operating line

Could this be changed do to the same, but for x in the third column ?

thankyou ?

change  /^105,(\d+)/ to /^105,[^,]*,(\d+)/
(assuming that the third column is an unsigned decimal integer)

the following results were given from a test set

13 78540
14 78540
15 77792
12 77700
16 76384
11 75924
17 74400
10 73112
18 71920
9 69160
19 69020
20 65772
8 63960
21 62244
22 58500
7 57400
23 54600
24 50600
6 49364
25 46552
26 42504
5 39732
27 38500
28 34580
29 30780
4 28380
30 27132
31 23664
32 20400
33 17360
3 15180
34 14560
35 12012
36 9724
37 7700
38 5940
39 4440
40 3192
41 2184
42 1400
43 820
44 420
45 172
46 44


The results seem to be correct BUT they are written to file in a strange manner.

they should be written this way

3 15180
4 28380
5 39732
6 49364.... etc

with the first number being the value of the data in the third column, and the second larger number being the number of rows with that value as the third column.

Now the code works as required.
Should I accept this for this question, and we can sort the order out in another question ?
