So you like my Thesis-O-Meter?
Thank you. Please be my guest and install a copy of it to track
your own thesis progress.
Beware: if you spend too much time customizing its output, you
may need to install a Thesis-O-Meter-O-Meter....
- Here's my somewhat complicated Makefile that I use to run Latex on my
thesis. It uses a helper program called nowarning. For Thesis-O-Meter
purposes, the key thing that the Makefile does is to run the
following command automatically whenever an error-free
.dvi file is built:
wordcount thesis >> thesis.wc
Install my wordcount script, or if you
have a different way to generate a thesis.wc file with the same
format, go ahead and use that.
- Once you've got thesis.wc automatically keeping
track of your thesis wordcount history, you just need to
install the thesisometer.pl CGI
script in a place where your web server can run it. Edit the
constants at the top of the script and the padding in
set_html_wrapper, and you're all set.
- What? It's not working right and you want me to help you?
Sorry, I've got a thesis to write!
