in reply to Unpredictable output from Text::ExtractWords

Change your string list to this:
my @strings = ( q|a ab abc abcd abcde|, q|abcde abcd abc ab a|, q|abcde a abc ab abcd|, q|yyy xzz wwww|, q|one two 'three'|, );
The C code strips single letter words, 2 letter words, "words" of repeating characters as non-text. Probably not very helpful. It is also buggy in handling the stripping as someone else mentioned so pick a better module! :/

[shmem]: sounds good.

[stevieb]: I'm working on it to fatten it up and make it more reliant so I can finalize my Raspberry Pi automated build system for that software :) It's all well and fun, until I try to make it work with Windows lol
[shmem]: "debugging a program is more difficult than to write it in the first place. If you code your program as smart as you are, you are, by definition, too dumb to debug it."
[stevieb]: I literally laughed. That's good :) Perhaps I just need to go climb another mountain and forget about it
