     a class that performs basic text analysis using the Split command. Count characters, words, punctuation and layout characters. Thanks to merlin who found a bug in the basic countChar routine (answered 1 if there was no text in serch string) and 'Word counter *Excellent' who inspired me to attempt it. ----------------------------Thanks to Min Thant Sin for finding two bugs. Fixed the bug for blank text. Corrected the word count to give correct count. Also extended the class by adding the ability to set acceptable punctuation to allow hyphanated or underscore connected words to be counted as one. Included a bas module that contains the same concepts but designed to be used without the full class being impelmented, just take the bits you want, this bas module uses Paramaters rather than Properties to operate. (NOTE the bas file is not used by the demo).

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
