Another Version
Authored by: micmoo on Jul 31, '07 12:01:36PM

I am a TOTAL applescript n00b. I just started a few days ago. I made this one:

set Entry to display dialog "Enter Text" default answer ""
set textEntry to text returned of Entry

set myCount to count (textEntry)
set myWords to count words of (textEntry)
set myParas to count paragraphs of (textEntry)
display dialog
"Characters: " & myCount & "
Words: " & myWords & "
Paragraphs: " & myParas

It sorta seems pointless cause you would copy and paste it anyway, but what the heck. Don't flame saying this isn't useful cause its not. I just figured I would make it. Enter any text and it counts it words, characters, paragraphs.
