How many sugyot are marked in the 1835 Vilna printing of the Talmud Bavli?

I am defining a sugya by a section divided between "two dots" ( : ) or between the words of mishna and "two dots".

I am curious to compare this number to other possible countings of Halachot.

I imagine if one has access to the Bar Ilan research tools, it will aid in this answer.

This is one of a group of similar questions: mitzvos, Mishna, Y'rushalmi, Bavli, Mishne Tora, Shulchan Aruch, Mishna B'rura, Yalkut Yosef – msh210 Dec 29 '13 at 6:29
Wow, so many down votes... without any explanation. This community rocks! – avi Dec 29 '13 at 6:31
It just doesn't look like an interesting question IMHO – Shmuel Brin Dec 29 '13 at 7:04
Well, I'm sorry that my interests don't interest you! It's always nice to have reminders, of why one made previous choices... If I lied and said that I wanted to know how to break up my learning by this method, would you then find it interesting? – avi Dec 29 '13 at 7:08
