January 17, 2013, 7:06 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Hermetic Word Frequency Counter Advanced Version is a Windows program which has been published for several years by Hermetic Systems. It allows a user to define what characters may appear in a word, and it counts all words or selected words and phrases in one or more text and text-like files (including HTML and XML files). Common words such as 'the' can be ignored. Results can be displayed in a variety of formats, and can be exported to a file which can be read into Excel for further processing. The program can also create an Excel-readable table of the frequencies of words vs. files in which they occur. (There is also a basic version which counts all words in a single file.)
Hermetic Systems has now released a version of this program which counts not only all words in multiple files but also counts all phrases. Or more exactly, all phrases consisting of a user-specified number of words (minimum to maximum) which occur at least a user-specified number of times.
Both the basic and advanced versions have proven useful to many people for a variety of purposes, such as creating a concordex from a corpus of texts, creating an index for a book, or simply finding what words and phrases occur most often in a file or in a set of files.
User licenses for both the basic and the advanced versions are available as 3-month, 1-year and perpetual licenses. A perpetual user license for the Advanced Version costs US$59.75 (a license for the basic version costs US$38.75). The product page for the Advanced Version is at http://www.hermetic.ch/wfca.htm and a description of the new count-all-phrases function is at http://www.hermetic.ch/wfca/phrases.htm A trial version is freely downloadable.
