About to start a new project & looking for advice

I work at a lumber yard and I have a bunch of text files (called pick lists) that start with about twenty to forty lines of pointlessness then gets to the data needed. It looks like this:
1,2x4,16',2100
2,2x4,14',#2
3,2x6,12',#2
1,2x4,10',#2
1,2x4,16',2100
2,2x4,14',#2
1,2x4,10',#2
3,2x6,12',#2
3,2x6,12',#2
......
QTY,SIZE,LENGTH,GRADE
I'm the guy that gets handed this printout and gets to count all this out (they are much longer like 2-3 pgs.) I know I can write something, somewhere to sort through these files and just print out the added QTY of each instance of similar size, length & grade. I just don't know where to start.
Thanks for any input
