As everybody else pointed out, split will save you ;-)

What I want to add is, to use hash instead of array in this case. Why not go one step further and make your exercise more meaningful, and think about better data structure.

The benefit of using hash is so that you can count the frequency of each word:

use Data::Dumper; use strict; use warnings; my $words; while (<DATA>) { for (split) { $words->{$_} ++; } } print Dumper($words); __DATA__ three blind mice three blind mice see how they run

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
