wc -w "#convolve-help.pd" says 3086, but counting only the contents of the 
comments, it's 1596. To be fair, however, you have to count the code 
examples, and doc elements that aren't plain comments, so it's probably 
closer to 2000.


But that's because it contains a whole tutorial, too. Otherwise, the 
design of the thing is quite simple.

I don't think that 2300 words (or 3600 words for more recent docs) is that 
large. A hardcopy of a successful book such as Tolstoï's War and Peace has 
560000 words and doesn't even come with a Ctrl+f feature.
