Numbers of characters within a document

Postby mcsentas » Fri Nov 24, 2017 9:20 am

How do I find the numbers of characters within a document.?
Not a word-count, but a character count.

Welcome to the forum!

You can use the texcount tool. Alternatively, you can use any PDF word/character count tool, or convert the PDF file to text format using pdftotext (from xpdf) and use the wc tool.
