Default Word Frequency Count Software


I don't remember what it was or where I found it but in my old PC I had a free program that counted the frequency of words in a document.
My LibreOffice comes with a character and word count but not the frequency feature.
Any suggestions?

I think there's a software called Hermetic something or another. I know you can search for sites that supply the empty text box for you to fill, but I presume you want the software. There may be some stylometry software you can download that will do even more than just word frequency.

There is the Hermetic software for around $20. There's also a couple open source.

If you have a word or two that you think you use too often, you can do a findstr in command prompt to find out how many times you used it. That's free.!

If you are using Microsoft word to write, when you are on the "HOME" tab of the menu on the right side there is find. Click that and type in any word you want. It will tell you how many you have and highlight all of them for you.

I'm well aware of the Find function.

What I had was a program that gave the numbers!

Example:

The = 000,000
Need = 000,000

and so one.

Did you find your software?

I think open source means free, but not sure.

It wouldn't be too hard to code something like that up ... Definitely not worth $20.

EXACTLY what I was looking for!

The keyword count was most important.
