I know you're just tossing that code off quickly, but I'm curious to know why you chose to write:

while (<>) { my ($f) = (split)[6]; $count{$f}++; }

...rather than...

while (<>) { $count{(split)[6]}++; }

It makes me wonder if there's some robustness principle at work that eludes me. And of course, there is even...

$count{(split)[6]}++ while <>;

... but then we are getting into the realms of the cryptic, and I don't seen a more concise way of printing the top N values that doesn't sacrifice economy.

[GotToBTru]: I
[GotToBTru]: ve been looking at a document we have been sending to a customer for years now
[MidLifeXis]: We don't, at least in this case ;-)
[GotToBTru]: and it includes a reference number that I didnt recognize
[GotToBTru]: I had to dig into the code to find out where it came from .. and it makes no sense
[GotToBTru]: so I emailed my contact asking if we could just stop sending it .. I'm afraid she is going to ask "what is that anyway?"
