Build a service to count characters, words and paragraphs
Authored by: tofergregg on May 02, '12 04:00:04PM
Here's what I do when I want to count something that isn't in a text file:

  1. select the text and copy it.
  2. open Terminal and type wc.
  3. paste the text.
  4. type ctrl-D.

This prints out lines / words / characters of the selected text.
