we're really guessing at what you are trying to do, so in that spirit maybe here's a real life example that has enough stuff in it to be useful on a few fronts...


test file
#ls -la > test.txt ... abreviated

$ cat test.txt | perl -l -n -e 'BEGIN {$x="OQ91";$linecount=0;$sum=0;} if((split)[2]==$x){$linecount++ ;$sum += (split)[5]; printf "%s\t %s\t\t %s\n",(split)[2],(split)[5],(split)[9]} ; END {printf "linecount: %d  Sum: %d",$linecount,$sum}'

Here's some output... abreviated

linecount: 61  Sum: 88200728

sums the 5th column if the tests are true, counts the lines... prints the 2nd, 5th and 9th columns, AND it's a one liner...
