How many notes are there in moonlight sonata 3rd mvmt?

I play this piece and just out of curiosity I want to know how many notes there are in it. I don't have the patience to count them all(I'm sure there are more than 1000) and i don't have any software that can count them.

Update:

Edit: From the answers that i saw yet, people are telling that i assume that others will count them for me...i don't expect people to do this, i expect that they use a software...

    You don't want to count the notes but you assume someone else will be happy to do it for you?

    Why?

    If ever I am challenged with whether I ever accomplished anything in life, I can say this. 6531. To those who said nobody would, I was too curious, and there was no answer on the net.

    Yes, I counted all 201 measures. The slurs and trills definitely made things difficult, so actually the number is at best a close guess (especially that last trill, sheesh). I can only play (badly) the part that repeats, and then I lost my motivation after that, so I don't know every note of the piece. If you want to check my work, here it is, measure by measure:

    Moonlight Sonata 3rd Movement Notes

    So - see if it is already uploaded to the Sibelius or Finale users sites. THEN it will be easy to find someone to open it for you, and read the note-count feature. Not gonna be me - I enjoy wasting my time on things of my OWN choosing, not things assigned to me by strangers.

    Why don't you have someone also do a note-count to a Chopin etude, or the Devil's Staircase, or something with a lot MORE notes?
