bash parse output to variable

I am a C++ programmer and little knowledge of bash ;)

I have $output string in format

Command line asked for 29 of 639 tests
Of those: 0 Skipped, 5 Failed, 0 Warned, 24 Passed

I wanted to extract the integer before Failed and assign it to bash variable (in this case 5)
How do i do this in bash script. I want to make sure the value is "0" which means no test failed

[[ $output =~ ", 0 Failed" ]] && echo "No test failed"

Thats a crazy syntax, I would have never figured out this. Can you please provide me the link if you have one

so I am using this now

F=${output%Failed*}
        if [${F##*,} -ne 0 ]; then
                echo "Failed Num of errors = ${F##*,}"
        fi

perlperlAuthor Commented:

 if [ $? -ne 0 ] || ! [$output =~ ", 0 Failed"]; then
   echo "Failed"
fi

This worked. i hate bash scripting

 if [ $? -ne 0 ] || [[ ! "$output" =~ ", 0 Failed" ]]; then

[[ syntax is slightly different from [ syntax.  In particular, [ does not have the =~ operator
