I understood that

file1,20
file2,30
file3,10

is the content of 1.txt. Right?

FOLDER="folderA"
while read line
  do
    file=$FOLDER/$(cut -f1 -d"," <<<$line)
    count=$(cut -f2 -d"," <<<$line)
        if [[ -e $file ]] ; then
              if [[ $(wc -w < $file) -eq $count ]]; then
                  echo "File $file exists, word count $count OK"
                    else  echo "File $file exists, but word count is not OK"
               fi
          else echo "File $file does not exist"
       fi
  done < 1.txt

IFS+=",";
cat 1.txt | while read f w ; do
 echo -n "$f "
 wc=`wc -w folderA/$f`
  if (( $w != ${wc% *}-0  )) ; then

I find it interesting that different people have different ways to do things..


#!/bin/bash
cd folderA
for i in `cat 1.txt`; do
	if [ -e $i ]; then
		echo "File $i exists..."
		wanted=`echo $i | cut -d, -f 2`
		count=`cat $i | wc -l`
		if [ "$wanted" == "$count" ]; then
			echo "Word count matches"
		else
			echo "Word count doesn't match"
		fi
	else
		echo "File $i doesn't exists..."
	fi
done

Another solution

#!/bin/bash
while IFS="," read file count
do
  if [[ -f folderA/$file ]]
  then
     if [[ $(wc -w <folderA/$file) -eq $count ]]
     then
        echo "$file has matching word count"
     else
        echo "$file has mismatched word count."
     fi
  else
     echo "$file does not exist"
  fi
done <1.txt
