Hi All

I have a very simple problem and I am looking for the simplest solution.

I have a list of elements in a file. I like to find the total occurance
of each element in the list like this

10 string1
7 string2
1 string3

from a list which has only string1,string2 and string3 like this


I have a list of 30000 lines and I think I have only 615 unique
elements. So I like the script not to take too much memory of the
system. I will be running it on Solaris 8

Thanks a lot
