I know RPG fans will hate me for saying this, but this
looks like an ideal application for Perl.  About a dozen
lines of Perl code should do it.  A Google search on
"word count Perl" came up with this web page:
<http://www.stonehenge.com/merlyn/UnixReview/col02.html>
which discusses counting words in a file (among other
things).
