"Wonderful utility for ?word people;? updated regularly"
I love the attention to detail; there are so many different options to make it do what I want. It's solid, fast, and doesn't crash. It seems that the developer actually cares about this software.
Hard to say. The developer has added a bunch of features specifically because I requested them.
I'm a mad tweaker. (No, not that kind.) I love to mess around with settings until I get things just right, which I can do with this software. I actually get excited when I start it up. Load up my personal file of words that I don't need counted, and then load in the text I want analyzed. In seconds, I get a sortable list that shows me the most frequently-occurring words. Ever wonder wanted to generate a word list for a book? Just head over to Gutenberg or Wikisource, find a public-domain book, and load it all up. You can set this program up to create word lists like that.Be sure to check out the Advanced version (Hermetic Word Frequency Counter Advanced) of this software if you want to be able to scan entire folders rather than just single files. This is helpful if you want to scan a lot of files at once.
Best of all, the developer, Peter, actually responds to email quickly and intelligently and continues to develop this software. In other words, it's not a dead project, nor is it just some sloppily-coded software thrown together to make a quick buck on download.com.
