The package provides a relatively easy way of estimating the number of words in a LaTeX document that does not require dvitty or other DVI converters. It does however require something like Unix grep -c that can search a file for a particular string and report the number of matching lines. An accompanying shell script wordcount.sh contains more information in its comments.
