Thanks, Daniel
However I don't want to mess up anything that the built in dlls support
better. I only wanted to verify the way Word counts words. If that changes,
then maybe I'll need to do this.
(for those who are wondering, I wrote a shell script as follows:
c=0;for i in `cat "$1"`;do if [[ $i != '-' ]];then (( c = c + 1 ));fi;done)

That emulates the way Word counts words; you need a text only file, of
This I verified by sending the file I needed a word count to a friend who
has Word installed under Windows.
If you wrestle in the mud with a pig.
you both get dirty, and the pig likes it.
