in reply to Receiving Standard Input/Piped

Warning: There is no Perl in this post!

For what you are doing, you could get most of that via the commandline tools:

> ls * | xargs wc -l
Or, if you have a directory tree that you want to examine:
> find . -type f | xargs wc -l
This will even give you your total, but you may hit the limit of the size of a command line.

    You are most certainly correct. =)
    But the process script that counted lines however was just a gimpy example to do something that used all the inputs. The processing is intensive but unrelated to my problem. I had actually forgotten about the word count binary though, thanks.
