I am looking to get to know about how many words and characters are there in a particular Content Item using Sitecore powershell. I know how to do it for a file. for ex:

Get-Content C:\testfile.txt | Measure-Object –Line -Word

but unable to do it for a content item. Any suggestions.

This would do you count for the text field for the home item.

$item = Get-Item -Path "master:\content\home"
$measure =  $item["text"] | Measure-Object –Line -Word
echo $measure
