A simple minor mode to display output similar to that of the standard Unix
wc command in the mode line: character count, word count, and line count.
Please send bug reports and suggestions to email@example.com (you can post them here as well if you like, of course). I don’t check this page regularly, so anything not emailed to me is likely to languish here unnoticed for some time.
Note that other useful and very similar WordCount code is also available. But I had this code lying around, and it works well, so it might as well be made available.
