Why are you counting your close curly braces? Wouldn't it be better to just count the ';'s? If you are like me and comment a lot (even comment out lines of code for later use) you might want to grep out the '#'s too then count the ';'s.

I still can't think of why you would count the close curlies though.

egrep -v '^#' file | egrep -e ';$' | wc -l

    I count the braces so that conditionals and loops count as a line apeice. Admittedly that pulls in subs too (and anonymous hashes, if their closing brace doesn't end on the same line as the semi). It's just a personal preference.
