I created a small utility in Flex designed to assist RA’s and others at Purdue when designing bulletin boards. This utility takes a string and returns a breakdown of all the characters contained therein. How is this useful you ask? Well, when it comes time to cut out letters it is very nice to easily calculate that you need 5 letter E’s, 4 letter C’s etc. Source and application will eventually be posted to my projects site.
Here is the application example embedded in the site:
[flash medium=1 w=370 h=500]
Note: This requires Flash Player 9 to run properly.
