I want to count how many words my LaTeX document has in it. I can do this by going to the website for the texcount package and using the web interface there. but that's not ideal.
I'd rather have some shortcut within emacs to just return number of words in a file (or ideally number of words in file and in all files called by
\include within the document). I have downloaded texcount script, but I don't know what to do with it. That is, I don't know where to put the
.pl file, and how to call it within emacs.
That is: I want a keyboard shortcut for a shell command. And I want that shell command to run texcount on the current active buffer and return the total words in the minibuffer.
I'm using Ubuntu and emacs22, if that helps...
