Ok - I'll take a stab at answering your question "What am I doing wrong?" :
  • Not using 'strict'. (add "use strict;" to the top of your code)
  • Not using canonical "open" with local filehandle. (Try : open(my $f, "<", $file) or die "Cannot open '$file':$!";)
  • Not declaring variables (use my @array; (follows from "use strict"))
  • Not formatting/aligning your code for visibility
  • Not following advice (davido's code works for what you need)
  • Not reading how hashes work
  • Not closing the file handle you opened.
  • Not posing your question(s) clearly
  • Not showing what you expect as a result of your code
  • Not showing sample data
The answer to the question in your previous post on the meaning of "/g" can be found by running "perldoc perlre".

             I hope life isn't a big joke, because I don't get it.

in thread hash to count words by underoathed

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
