wordcount   2016/06/03 v1.7

The package provides a relatively easy way of estimating the number of
words in a LaTeX document that does not require dvitty or other DVI
converters. It does however require something like Unix grep -c that
can search a file for a particular string and report the number of
matching lines. An accompanying shell script wordcount.sh contains
more information in its comments.

The pack­age pro­vides a rel­a­tively easy way of es­ti­mat­ing the num­ber of words in a doc­u­ment that does not re­quire dvitty or other DVI con­vert­ers. It does how­ever re­quire some­thing like Unix grep -c that can search a file for a par­tic­u­lar string and re­port the num­ber of match­ing lines. An ac­com­pa­ny­ing shell script word­count.sh con­tains more in­for­ma­tion in its com­ments.
