When I run this code, it returns words that are not contained in the wordlist. They are just pieces of the word.
Have you changed the path to the input file? The code should only print words from the list!

    I did change the path but it looks like the code is substringing words through itself. Here is what I get:

    p in pogy's po in pogy's pogy in pogy's o in pogy's og in pogy's g in pogy's gy in pogy's gy's in pogy's y in pogy's y's in pogy's s in pogy's

    The process needs to look for the word "pogy's" within another word in the list like "apogy's"

      Are you sure "p", "po", "pogy" etc. are not on the list, too? If you are interested just in the words contained in other words, just declare the %found outside of the outermost loop and print only $subword.
