    Hi,

    I have a .txt file that reads like this:

    Name1 4-6, 72-109, 304-391
    Name2 7-93, 101-110, 143-155, 167-500
    ..etc

    I need to count the number of values across all the ranges for each name. So name1 would be:

    4-6 = 3, 72-109 = 38, 304-391 =88

    3 + 38 + 88 = 129 values in name1

    I need to carry this out on 24,000 lines, anyone recomend a simple way using awk, C, Fortran or Python?

    Thankyou
