in thread Challenge: 8 Letters, Most Words

you have often a different and interesting view of looking at the problem.

How many dictionary words contain 7 repeats of the same letter? :)

    You don't need 7 repeats to exhibit the problem:
    aabc aacb aabc aabc abca eefg efge eegf eegf efeg aabcxy eefglm
    Your code produces: a b c e f g m x: 0

Discipulus a missing semicolon after use LWP::UserAgent caused very strange behaviour and not the normal warning...
[choroba]: Yes, sometimes missing ; after the use clause just interprets the next line somehow and passes the result to the used module which could happily ignore it. Been there, seen that.
[Discipulus]: luckly the program was 20 lines!
