Help with Simple Perl/Python Script

I have the following problem, which I need done in Perl/ or Python using Unix/linux filters...

1. You have a very large file, named 'ColCheckMe', tab-delmited, that you are asked to process. You are told that each line in 'ColCheckMe' has 7 columns, and that the values in the 5th column are integers.
Using Perl/python (and standard LINUX/UNIX filters), indicate how you would verify that these conditions were satisfied in 'ColCheckMe'


2. In the same file, you are told that each value in column 1 is unique. How would you verify that?


3. Write a shell function that counts the number of occurrences of the word “SpecStr” in the file 'ColCheckMe'.


Thanks a lot
