Hi, can someone show me a regex to find sentences in LaTeX docs with more than a
certain number of words? I want to find all sentences with > 30
words (I have a weakness for writing waffling sentences :-))
I started to get something going in re-builder but it needs to allow
LaTeX escape chars \{}[] (are there more?) within sentences as well as
normal punctuation.

Or maybe a regex isn't the best thing for this?

Thanks very much,
