Shakespeare Electronic Conference, Vol. 4, No. 209. Wednesday, 31 March 1993.

Subject: Electronic Text and Concordance.
My apologies if this is old news, but I discovered quite by accident
yesterday a public domain program which will write a concordance for an
electronic text. I have already used it myself on etexts of several
Shakespearean works - it will only work on text-only files - and it will
write a concordance of a play in about three to five minutes. There are
various ways of modifying what words are included or omitted, and how they
are cited and referenced.
I obtained the software via ftp (the Fetch!) program from an Australian
site, but it can also be found at a number of other locations:

I got quite excited about finding this program: while their are plenty of
concordances available in the ANU libraries I don't think it hurts to have
one ready to hand, and on disk too!
