    var dataIdB = configs.get("conf_NumOfCharDataId");
    //// == ワークフローデータの参照 / Data Retrieving ==
    var myText = data.get( dataIdA ) + "";
    //// == 演算 / Calculating ==
    var myCount = myText.replace(/\r|\n/g, "").replace(/\s+/g," ").length;
    //「改行」は文字として数えない / Not including "Line break"
    //「空白連続」は1文字として数える / Counting "consecutive spaces" as one character. 
    // 注)タブや全角空白なども「\s」に含まれる(UTF-8)
    // Note) Tab and double byte space are included in "\s" (UTF-8)

    retVal.put( dataIdB, java.math.BigDecimal( myCount ) );

    • A’: Strings stored in the selected data item A
    • The Number of characters of the Strings selected in config A’ will be stored in the Data Item selected in config B
    • Does not count Line Break code.
    • Space (including tabs and double-byte space) will be counted, but the consecutive spaces is deemed to be one character all together.
