I would like to know if it's possible to use wget to wordcount an entire website.
Has anyone already tried that?
This is what I have found so far:
wget -q -O- http://www.website.com | grep -c .
But if the site is not static, has password protected areas or contains forms, you are not going to be able to retrieve all of it easily.
If you need to count all the words on, say Amazon, you might need to top up the credit card associated with your one-click account :-)
