#!/usr/bin/perl $/ = ""; $* = 1; while (<>) { #s/-\n//g; tr/A-Z/a-z/; @words = split(/\W*\s+\W*/, $_); # split into words foreach $word (@words) { $wordcount{$word}++; # count the words } } foreach $word (sort keys(%wordcount)) { printf "%8d\t\t%s\n", $wordcount{$word}, $word; }

Hope that helps

    Use word boundaries (\b).
    $_ ='The,quick,brown;foxy. Does a lot,of:jumping!'; my @words = split(/\W*\s+\W*/, $_); # split into words print 'Number of words: '.@words."\n";
    gives 4 words. However
    my @words = split(/\b\W*/, $_); # split into words
    gives 9 words.
