in thread count string occurance

In that case, you'd read the names from file as you were doing in your own example. And do the counting while your are reading the file itself.
while (<FILE>) { ## extract NAME from the record ## count it $names{$name}++; }

    Thanks a bunch guys, this is what I decided to go with.
    #!/usr/bin/perl -w use win32; use strict; %hash = (); my $user_usage = $in_file."_user_usage.txt"; open(FILE,"$dups") || die " can't open: $!"; open(USERTIME,">$user_usage") || die " can't open: $!"; # Define the output file format our $UserID="UserID"; our $days="Usage"; format USERTIME= @<<<<<<<<<<<<<@>>>>>>> $UserID, $days . #write the title line write(USERTIME); my $user; my $time; my $date; my $node; while (<FILE>) { chomp; next unless ( ($_ =~ /$in_year/) ); ($user, $node, $date) = split; push(@{$hash{$user." ".$date}}, $node); } foreach $user(sort keys %hash ) { $time = @{$hash{$user}++}; #print $user, " ", $time, "\n"; print USERTIME $user, " ", $time, "\n"; } close FILE; close USERTIME;
