in reply to counting string in a text file

You don't need to count. All you need is to find out the boundaries - where color changes. Loop through the file and store boundaries in, for example, a hash. In that hash, use line number as key, and the color as value. This way your code does not have dependency on the number of colors and it is more extensible.
