Counting words in Vim

In order to count words, you have, at least two options. Using !wc % shell tool or pressing <kbd>g</kbd> <kbd>Ctrl g</kbd>. The first one, in this example uses the current file (buffer) as a standard input. You can, of course, fine tune the scope: whole file or selected text.
