# How to stop texcount from counting \begin{comment}…\end{comment}

Is there a way to stop texcount from counting words in \begin{comment}...\end{comment} blocks? It seems to skip only comments starting with %

Thank you very much in advance!

Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. –  Christian Hupfer Mar 12 at 14:54
