Hi marshall,

Thanks for the help. And in the same script which you have provided me few days ago and i also modified and posted yesterday. In that i want the comparison to be case-sensitive which means all words should be compared without case-sensitivesness..

for eg. If i have the word "finding" in the candidate and "Finding" in reference. The present script dont give the count in reference for that word, since it has capital F.

So, how can deal with this case-sensitive problem. Any help plz

    I'm not sure what you need. To count the number of occurrences of "finding" in a case insensitive way would require the /i switch for case_insensitive and then the /g switch to keep going globally.

    There is a critter, called the goatse operator, "=()=" that will give the scalar count of the number of matches. You can read about it here: goatse operator. Or just look at the code and play with it..

    !/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; my $x = "Finding fiNding fIndinG finding"; my $count = () = $x =~ /finding/ig; print "$count\n"; #prints 4

    Say that out loud and see if it makes sense to you -- in the same sentence you use "case-sensitive" to mean both case-sensitive and case-insensitive

    So what is your goal?
