Re: How to read from a file instead from a hard coding list.

in reply to How to read from a file instead from a hard coding list.

If I undestand correctly you should change:

my @words=qw( portion answers printer program );

To:

my $file = '/path/to/file'; my @words; open my $fh, '<', $file or die "Could not open $file: $!"; while(<$fh>){ push @words, split; } close $fh or die $!;

Untested.
