To do word count in ARJ archives, let’s get to know a little more about this format.
ARJ (Archived by Robert Jung) was designed by Robert K. Jung for creating high-efficiency compressed file archives.
It was the main rival archiver of PKZIP during the early and mid-1990s. While less popular than PKZIP, it did have a niche market during the BBS era. This was thanks to its more robust creation and handling of multi-volume archives (more suited for slow connections).
Many modern software utilities can create, modify or open ARJ files, notably 7-Zip, Zipeg and WinRar.

Therefore, if you would like to calculate word counts of files in the archive (e.g., which you have just received from client), you do not need to extract them first. Just add archive to AnyCount as you usually add individual files and AnyCount will do the rest.
When counting of .ARJ files is completed, you can:
