Thanks Adam, Clement and Stefano. This produces the required result (but I 
still need to redirect stderr to /dev/null to get just the numeric answer that 
I'm looking for).

A slight modification to sed -n 8,9p prints both horizontal and vertical 
pixels which is even better. :-)

Now I just need to learn how to do arrays in bash (or learn another 
programming language other than Visual Basic) so I can do something useful 
with the rest of the output that I'm currently throwing away. :-)

Have a great weekend!
