Vim: Counting words/characters

Post by peter_b »

  1. Select a visual range
  2. Press "g" then "Ctrl+G".
At the bottom, in the status bar you should now see something like this:
Selected 14 of 102 Lines; 110 of 375 Words; 750 of 2575 Chars; 750 of 2577 Bytes
If you have no range selected, the stats will be for the whole document, relating to your current cursor position.
