in reply to Seeking a better way to do it

Use grep!!!

my $char_list = "Enter Iago, Othello, and others"; my @Word_List = grep { /[A-Z]\w+/ } split(/\W/, $char_list); print "@Word_List\n";
Update:

Simple way with regular expression,

my $char_list = "Enter Iago, Othello, and others"; my @Word_List; @Word_List = ($char_list =~ /([A-Z]\w+)/g); print "@Word_List\n";

    That would also match camelCase and Some_shell, you'd want

    my @wordlist = ($string =~ m{\b ([A-Z][a-z]+) \b}gx);

    as BrowserUK also posted

    This works assuming OP also wants to return 'Enter'. This is left out of the requirements, but I'm not sure if it is an oversight or not.

[nysus]: What happened to the submit button? All I have is a preview button.
[erix]: perlmonks has become read-only ?
[marto]: erix unlikely, we've had posts within the last few minutes ;)
[ambrus]: nysus: make sure you enter at least two lines for the title and then preview, and read warnings the preview form prints
[davies]: There is an option (I have it set) to force preview before submission. Perhaps your option has been set (accidentally?) and you are not expecting it.
[ambrus]: sorry, I mean at least two words for the title and then preview
[ambrus]: davies: that option is the default. and it's not really "force", it just hides the button.
[marto]: yes, not reading the errors displayed has been a cause of this type of report in the past
