Get text-file word occurrence count of all words & print output sorted

view full story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I had a command which would work through a text file, count all the occurrences of the words and print it out like this: remy@box $˜ magic-command-i-forgot | with grep | and awk | sort ./textfile.txt 66: the 54: and 32: I 16: unix 12: bash 5: internet 3: sh 1: GNU/Linux So it does not search line-by-line, but word by word, and it does it for all the words, not just for 1 word. I'd found it somewhere on the internets a long time ago, but I cannot find or remember it.. (HowTos)
