I have a well formed XML but not a well formatted XML like :
Now my requirement is to counter number of occurents in locale node for DE and FR locale.
For Example: Number of DE occurences is : 2
Number of FRoccurences is : 1
since the XML if not formatted so i cant use GREP for following
: grep "<locale>DE</locale>" <filename> | wc -l
Can anyone suggest me how can i count number of occurences in such an XML file whose format can change anytime.It may happen that entire thing is one line or may be as scattered as above.
Any quick help would be appreciated.Its urgent for me and i am stuck here.Can anyone guide me what can i do in quick time.
thanks in advance to everyone,

Use XML-aware software instead of generic tools like grep. For example you could write an XSL transformation that uses the count() function.

Plus depending on how the "line break/carriage return/white-space character" is interpretted, you might end up with only ONE line and so only one count, right?
