    Question Font characters/glyphs counter

    Hi!

    Exist any tool or software or Shell Extension which allows to display characters/glyphs count in selected font without opening it in any font editor?
    It can be also command line utility.

    Thank you for help.

    If I understand correctly, yes
    LibreOffice does both character and word count and fairly sure Microsoft Word does also.

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.

    I'm sorry for my bad English.

    I mean not characters or words in document or text.
    I mean glyphs in font or also named in old resources like characters in character set.

    So, glyphs count in font.

    Thank you!
    Great tool, not freeware, but I tried it at least.
    Best option is any command line tool which can output glyphs count exist? Or is it included in that software and need only find it?

    The inclusion of a CSS file to set features is of great potential.
