ls -1 | wc -l

This will give you a count of all the files (including directories). If you want just certain files, either change the ls command to look for *.txt (to look for files with .txt extension), or use the find command to look for certain types of files (see the man page for find, look for the -type option).

Can you use this command to count all of the files over a certain size?

Use find. Look at man find for more options.

find /usr/bin/ -size 11k -exec ls {} \;|wc -l
