Bug#459571: please include the TeXcount.pl script to do TeX word count
The TeXcount script is now included at CTAN:
As a consequence of the requests, I have started going over the script to
implement a few new features:
1. Ability to implement more general macro handling rules (which parameters
to count or not).
2. Ability to automatically perform counts on included tex files.
3. Ability to specify rules for new macros (as comments in the tex file or
in a separate file).
I'll have to make some further adjustments to this and then some proper
testing to ensure this new version, which will be version 2.0, works as
intended before I'll release it. I'll also try to find the time to write a
more appropriate documentation so that these features become more available
If you want to include it in the Debian TeX package, you may want to include
this new version rather than the present one.
