Could someone please assist here? I have a program that reads a text file and copys the contents separated by a $ sign and writes the details to another new text file excluding the $ Sign. What I need assistance is to do a count and get the total records separate by the $ sign. Eg. ajasasaj$testing%878788%%$lkshhajsjah
for the above the total count would be 3. What I want is the 3 value. so how could I get that 3? Please assist at your earliest.
