How do I format a page in LaTeX such that it will only contain 2400 keystrokes?

Anyone who knows how the preamble should look like?

    Do you need to do typesetting or to measure keystrokes? This is two very different things. And you can use different tools. TeX is designed for typesetting. – wipet May 4 '15 at 16:40
  • I guess you mean characters, not keystrokes. – Werner May 4 '15 at 16:42
  • there is no easy way (assuming you mean typeset characters rather than actual keyboard strokes) but why would you want such a thing? – David Carlisle May 4 '15 at 17:00
  • keystrockes spaces are included.. and typesetting.. i was more thinking of how the permeable should look like. – Richard Dawkins May 4 '15 at 17:00

    @DavidCarlisle You've obviously never written a grant proposal or similar (I had a similar restriction on some text for the Leverhulme Trust, but they only accept ASCII input on a website so it was easy enough). – Joseph Wright May 4 '15 at 17:17
