The Template:Strlen_quick gives the length of parameter 1, as a string, with a count of 0-70 characters, using a simple, quick method. The template was designed to run quickly and use only 5 levels of expansion depth, rather than 9-13 or more levels as in other string-length templates.

Usage:  {{strlen quick|abcdef}} Template:In5 → 6
{{strlen quick|123456789.}} → 10
{{strlen quick|2.4| extra= -1}} → 3

The optional parameter "extra= -1" can be used to return a specific value when a string exceeds the 70-character limit. The default result is -1 to indicate a string longer than 70 characters.
