hey does anyone know how to do a word count in PDF or Winedt?
I know this is not what you asked, but have you tried texcount? I have not used it too much, so I have not used all the various options, but in default mode it gives the following information directly from your tex file:
words in text
words in headers
words in float captions
number of headers
number of floats
number of math inlines
number of math displayed
I cannot vouch for its accuracy, as I have never bothered to check the results.
You'll need to be able to run a perl script. I'm using windows, so I downloaded the first free perl interpreter I found, which happened to be activeperl.
Like I said, I know it's not exactly what you asked about, but you might find it useful.
Yeah it works a treat, thanks a bunch!
