Data Counting words in a file

I'm trying to figure out a way to count the number of words in the follwing file:


cal 2002 > file1


Is there anyway to do this without using wc but instead using the cut command?

If this is not homework, just use "wc".

If this is homework, please read our rules and take a look at rule 6 in particular.
