95%? You expect to only have 20 words? ;) [Update: I was thinking of a "slurp" version -- and rechecking shows that the original Perl version had a much more serious bug...]

BTW, I guess "ain't" ain't a word. (:

    No, it ain't, either in Java or Perl.

    BTW you are making Perl look better, which none of the rest of us were doing! The way to demonstrate maintainability is to demonstrate how easy maintainance is. Fixing the definition of "word" used to include an optional 't or 's is easily enough done in the Perl version. In the Java version it is far harder to realize this important feature...
