Single count of files from multiple commands
I am executing the below command. It is working properly, displaying all file names
However, I'd like to revise this command to receive the total number of files listed.
For example, the "ls" command has 3 total files, and the find command has 15 total files. I want the combined total (18)
ls /ImageRight/*.[Tt][Xx][Tt] && find /ImageRight/Import/FUP/fupMonitor/backup -type f | grep -i "/i.*\.FUP"

You could pipe the whole lot through "wc -l"

Or use the -c option on the grep?
The moon on the one hand, the dawn on the other:
The moon is my sister, the dawn is my brother.
The moon on my left and the dawn on my right.
My brother, good morning: my sister, good night.
