Try this code. It's untested, and I never get it right if you need the {} around Count or not.

my $doc = $word->Application->Selection; # Selection can be the entire doc or refined to a sub-set of text # It is easier to use the functions that exist in word to do the work. $num_paragraphs = $selection->Paragraphs->{Count}; $num_words = $selection->Words->{Count}; $num_chars = $selection->Characters->{Count}; $num_pages = $selection->pagenumbers->{Count};
As for the line count, your going to have a problems here. Word probably does not mark new lines as you would expect. It automaticly wraps based on the available space. So instead of looking for line count you could do Sentence->Count.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
