I'm attempting to search a file for a Regex pattern, and return only a count of the number of hits. This is a massive file, 4.5 GB, and I'm expecting several million hits.

I don't need to see the context or the line itself. Just a count.

Been looking at various options in FLP, command line and interface, and if it's possible I can't figure how to make it happen.

Interesting problem. Currently there is no way to store only a count of the hits but not store the text.

I ended up using other tools to accomplish this.
