I'm writing my BSc thesis right now in LaTeX using texmaker. The maximum amount of characters (without spaces) for the thesis is 70'000. Is there a decent way to count this? Copy-pasting it into Word is quite tedious and sometimes several words are pasted without any spaces and so on. So it's not really precise...

Thanks for your help!

    count one page and multiply with the number of pages. That's always accurate according to percusse's Law of nonsensical thesis requirements

  • Who do you think will count your characters if you don't ?
