      I just tried the code above and it only prints the first word (update: on each line) that contains an exclamation point.

      #!/perl use warnings; use strict; while(<DATA>){ #print map {"$_\n"} grep{/!/} split; /(\w*!\w*)/g && print "$1\n"; } __DATA__ Mary had a little lamb! , whose fleece! was white! as snow. And everywhere! that Mary went, the lamb was sure! to go. oops!eedaisy

      Produces this:

      lamb! fleece! everywhere! sure! oops!eedaisy
        Oops - try
        while (/(\w*!\w*)/g) { print "$1\n"; }
