in reply to Count and List Items in a List

while (<FILE>) { @zapschool = split (/\t/); if (m/zaps/i) { print NEWFILE "$zapschool[4]\n"; } }
is slower than
while (<FILE>) { if (m/zaps/i) { @zapschool = split(/\t/); print NEWFILE "$zapschool[4]\n"; } }
which can be made more readable as
while (<FILE>) { if (m/zaps/i) { my $zapschool = (split(/\t/))[4]; print NEWFILE "$zapschool\n"; } }
And the solution is
my %count; while (<FILE>) { if (m/zaps/i) { my $zapschool = (split(/\t/))[4]; ++$count{$zapschool}; } } foreach (keys(%count)) { print NEWFILE "$_: $count{$_}\n"; }

    Hey, This is great! Thank you, and thanks to all the other folks who responded. I did this based on the code:
    open (FILE, "userstab.txt") || die "Cannot open file.\n"; open (NEWFILE, ">results.txt") || die "Cannot find or open file for ed +iting.\n"; my %count; while (<FILE>) { if (m/zaps/i) { my $zapschool = (split(/\t/))[4]; ++$count{$zapschool}; } } foreach (keys(%count)) { print NEWFILE "$_: $count{$_}\n"; } close NEWFILE; close FILE; print "Done!\n";
    WooHoo!
