in thread putting text into array word by word

I have tried your code, and although I get no syntax errors, it does not print the array

using the following code

#! /usr/bin/perl -w use strict; open(FILE,"<input.txt"); print "file loaded \n"; my @lines=<FILE>; my @temp_arr; close(FILE); my @all_words; foreach my $line(@lines) { @temp_arr=split('\s',$line); push(@all_words,@temp_arr); } print "@all_words\n";

    check your file from which you are taking the input.
    since you used +> parameter earlier , perl have deleted its contents.

      PERFECT, Thank you sooo much

      I can now go back to calmly pseudo-geeking.

        OK, now that's solved, let's look at the definition of 'word' (yes, things are going to get hairy...). Take this sentence, for example:

        "No, he said."

        The 'words' that your current code would extract are:

        "No, he said."

        Is that really what you want? Or would you prefer:

        No # or, better, 'no' he said
