Do you know where your variables are?

A Word document can compute its own page and line count as can be seen on the File->Properties->Statistics page. These values can also be calculated via the Word object model as follows:
#!/usr/bin/perl -l use strict; use Win32::OLE; use Win32::OLE::Const 'Microsoft Word'; my $word = Win32::OLE->new('Word.Application'); my $doc = $word->Documents->Open('c:\temp\test2.doc'); die "Unable to open document ", Win32::OLE->LastError() unless $do +c; my $pages = $doc->ComputeStatistics(wdStatisticPages); my $lines = $doc->ComputeStatistics(wdStatisticLines); my $words = $doc->ComputeStatistics(wdStatisticWords); print "Pages:\t", $pages; print "Lines:\t", $lines; print "Words:\t", $words; $doc->Close; __END__
I couldn't get the Word Const to work under -w without generating warnings (although it works fine under warnings). So here are the required constants just in case:
wdStatisticWords = 0 wdStatisticLines = 1 wdStatisticPages = 2 wdStatisticCharacters = 3 wdStatisticParagraphs = 4 wdStatisticCharactersWithSpaces = 5 wdStatisticFarEastCharacters = 6

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.
