in reply to testing parts of a string against a word database

I'd put the input into a hash; then scan nouns.txt (once) and for each word, see if it is in the hash.

use strict; use warnings; my %words = map { s/[.?!]$//; lc $_, $_ } split/\s+/,<STDIN>; open(NOUNS,'<',"nouns.txt") or die "Can't open noun database: $!\n"; while(<NOUNS>){ s/\s+//g; print "\n!MATCH! ~ $words{lc $_} is a noun\n" if exists $words{lc $_}; } close(NOUNS);
