Provided your file format is as you stated (numbers separated by a comma and space) it should work ok (tested fine on my server).

Post the error and we'll take a look

(BTW, if you aren't certain there will always be a space with each comma, change the first bit of the line from:
/, /

/, */



I tried using all the commands.Its giving error as follows- sed: command garbled: s/, */g

sed 's/, */*/g' file.txt | bc

works fine for me.

That error indicates you've not typed it correctly, you've left out a /* between the * and / there.
