GAMET: Grammar and mechanics error tool
GAMET is an easy to use tool that provides incidence counts for structural and mechanics errors in texts including grammar, spelling, punctuation, white space, and repetition errors. The tool also provides line output for the errors flagged in the text.
GAMET takes plain text files as input (it will process all plain text files in a particular folder) and produces a comma separated values (.csv) spreadsheet that is easily read by any spreadsheet software.
