This is what I ended up using, should have mentioned it was bash sorry
about that everyone. :) Anyway, what I wanted to do was quickly count the
entries on a particular port in my /var/log/firewall file to see how many
attempts have been coming in, and I didn't want to install apache on my
firewall to check them for CR/CR2 so I tried the following

pipedream:~ # probechk myaddr:80

<probechk file>

#! /bin/bash


ADDRESS=`$GREP "$1" /var/log/firewall | $AWK '{print $12}' | $SORT | \
$AWK -F: '{print $1}' | $UNIQ | $GREP -c -e [0-9]`

echo $ADDRESS individual machines

</probechk file>

This allows me to quickly count how many individual machines have tried
to connect to port 80 and compare it to what I'm used to which is
approximately 5-10 attempts in a week. So out of the 165+ I've gotten
since Monday, 155-160 are probably CR/CR2's.
Anyway, thanks for all the ideas I received, helps for the future when
I'm playing with other things just to see if I can do something.
