in thread compute the occurrence of words

Perhaps I was unclear, one of the things you have to do in order to count the number of occurrences of each word in a given text is to create a list of the unique words present, the other thing you have to do is associate a count with each of these words.

If you can think of a data structure more suited to this purpose than an associative array or hash, I'd be very interested.

print "Good ",qw(night morning afternoon evening)[(localtime)[2]/6]," fellow monks."
