in reply to Seeking a better way to do it

Use grep!!!

my $char_list = "Enter Iago, Othello, and others"; my @Word_List = grep { /[A-Z]\w+/ } split(/\W/, $char_list); print "@Word_List\n";

Simple way with regular expression,

my $char_list = "Enter Iago, Othello, and others"; my @Word_List; @Word_List = ($char_list =~ /([A-Z]\w+)/g); print "@Word_List\n";

    That would also match camelCase and Some_shell, you'd want

    my @wordlist = ($string =~ m{\b ([A-Z][a-z]+) \b}gx);

    as BrowserUK also posted

    Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn

    This works assuming OP also wants to return 'Enter'. This is left out of the requirements, but I'm not sure if it is an oversight or not.

[marto]: busy weekend, no me time :P
[Corion]: marto: Yeah, that's somewhat implied :) I was on the phone with my godson yesterday (they birthday), but I haven't seen them for two weeks now (vacation), relaxing, but I somewhat miss them too ;)
[Discipulus]: me waterpolo? oh no! i'm a no sport; the tournment was for the elder son
[karlgoethebier]: good morning
[Corion]: Discipulus: Ah, so he's the one getting almost drowned all the time - waterpolo certainly is no sport for me ;)
[karlgoethebier]: Corion: buy enough coke and popcorn...
