I came across this interesting text utility:

Works well for a variety of tasks.

There was a conspiracy theory at my university that this was how the lecturers marked our essays by looking for the number and frequency of key words :-) This tool would have been very useful if that was really the case.

Either way, great for finding those hidden messages.

One of the uses that this utility can be put to is key word counting/highlighting to help job seekers to build a relevant resume/cv. Increasingly, companies large and small are relying on 'applicant tracking systems' and resume/cv parsers to initially screen cv's/resumes for these key words. While the parsers' algorithms are 'secret,' including relevant key words in job searchers cv's/resumes prevents them from being discarded, raises the odds for their being looked at by a person.

This YouTube video by the developer demonstrates the cv/resume key word use:

Interesting.
