this page will give you the amount of characters like letters numbers in a string or a sentence or a paragraph to find out how many digits are in a number for example you can use it for count the number of characters in a letter or paragraph or phrase.

This sometimes helpful, for example when you are doing your homework and you want to know how many characters a paragraph contains so you can turn in your paperwork, but you first have to find out how many characters a paper documents contains, otherwise, you can file. another way i use this little script is sometimes when i am programing i want to limit the number of characters or letters i want a form to have and this can do that for me.

Try It!!

If you are interested in the simple code, here it is:
