Real Word Count Utility
Posted on 1998-10-13
Does anyone have (know of) a tool or program that will allow me to count the number of words in an HTML file? I don't want all the tags counted, just the words that would appear in the browser.
Our situation here is that we have documents coded in HTML that have to be translated into other languages. The rate for translations comes down to a cost per word. It would be beneficial if we had a utility that would examine all of the HTML files in a given directory tree and give us a total word count that applies to the words that need to be translated.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
