I have a large text file that is has 4 columns and is space separated.
somelongword otherlongword abcde abc
I would like to count the number of lines where the word in either the 3rd or 4th column is more than
n characters long. Eventually I will have many several files to look through, and I would like to print out one total number for each line in all the files.
My intuition is that I should use something like awk but I can't figure out the syntax to do what I want.
