Can Bibleworks count characters/letters (e.g., how many three letter words are in Philippians)? If so, how would one achieve this?

Set your limit to Philippians, "l phil" in the command line, minus quotes.

Type in whatever version you want with the 3-letter indicator, ie. KJV, NRS, etc.

Then type ".???" (minus the quotes) and run it. That should do it.

Thanks for the reply . . . works perfectly. Follow-up . . .

Is it possible to search for the number of times that successive three letter words occur (e.g., kai gar) in a particular book? If so, how?

Using the same logic, on the CL type --

'??? ???

Notice the apostrophe, not the period, before the search string.
