try that example:

```
IntDict inventory;
String[] lines, words;
String find = "Lorem";
boolean gotit = false;
long startT, stopT, dT;
void setup() {
size(200, 200);
inventory = new IntDict();
lines = loadStrings("http://websitetips.com/articles/copy/lorem/ipsum.txt");
for ( String l : lines ) {
words = split(l, ' ');
for ( String word : words ) inventory.add(word, 1);
}
println(inventory);
println("we have "+inventory.size()+" entries");
startT = millis();
inventory.sortKeys(); // sort alphabetically
gotit = inventory.hasKey(find); // look for search string
stopT = millis();
dT = stopT - startT;
if ( gotit ) {
println("Yes, we found _" + find + "_: " + inventory.get(find) + " times");
} else {
println("Sorry, no _" + find + "_");
}
println(" and needed for sort and search " + dT + " msec" );
}
```

results:

```
