I think the OP meant 'Iago' and 'Othello', so maybe something similar to this:

#!/usr/bin/perl -l use strict; use warnings; my ($char_list) = "Enter Iago, Othello, and others"; my (@words) = split( /\W/, $char_list, 0 ); foreach my $word (@words) { if ( $word =~ m/[F-Z]\w+/g ) { push my (@entering_chars), $word; print "@entering_chars"; } }

    But starX's script also gives "Enter" word in the output. I guess he/she need to extract words contains Upper case letter

    Ya, we really need more info. Limiting the first letter to F through Z is not very portable. If you already know the words you want (and choose the letters accordingly), you might as well name the words specifically.
