Allbasic, a website that was created for Basic-language programmers, is hosting another code challenge. Anyone who is interested in participating can enter their code to represent REALbasic. Additional details can be found here.
Information about the code challenge:
This next code challenge should expose the string handling aspects of a Basic language and provide something useful as a result.

The goal of this next code challenge is to build a fast and feature-rich word count/occurrence program. A second option is to create a program with the least amount of code that still generates a list of words and how many times it's used in the string / text file.
Here are some examples of other submissions to the code challenge.
