[OS X TeX] TeXcount Drop Scripts.

The texcount engines that come as part of TeXShop 2.26 (they must be  
activated to use them) assume that your TeX Distribution has the  
texcount perl program. If you have MacTeX 2008 there is no problem but  
previous distribution didn't have that program installed.

I've put together a pair of Drop Scripts (corresponding to the two  
[inactive] engine files that come with TeXShop 2.26) that have  
internal copies of texcount so they will work independent of TeX  
Distribution. If you drop filename.tex onto the Drop Script filename- 
count.html will be produced in the same directory as the tex file and  
your browser will open that html file. You can drop multiple tex files  
or even a folder containing tex files and all will be processed. (The  
process is NOT recursive! :-).)

You can get the Drop Scripts as DropTeXcount.zip from my download site  

Good Luck,
