Just for interest, here's a Perl 6 solution that works for arbitrary sets of input characters and arbitrary input lengths:
#! /usr/bin/env perl6 use v6; my @data = < AABBC BAABC AABBD AACBB >; # Use mixhashes (self-totalling, and they default to zero) my @freq = MixHash.new xx max @data».chars; # Count everything for @data».comb -> @chars { for @chars.kv -> $pos, $char { @freq[$pos]{$char}++; } } # Column labels my @labels = @data.join.comb.unique.sort; say join "\t", '', @labels; # Table rows for @freq.kv -> $pos, %score { say join "\t", ($pos+1).fmt("%2d"), %score{@labels}.map( * / %score.total )».fmt("%.2f") }
...and the output:
A B C D 1 0.75 0.25 0.00 0.00 2 1.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 3 0.25 0.50 0.25 0.00 4 0.00 1.00 0.00 0.00 5 0.00 0.25 0.50 0.25
Or with:
my @data = < AABBC BAABC AABBD AECBBF >;
...you get:
A B C D E F 1 0.75 0.25 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 2 0.75 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.25 0.00 3 0.25 0.50 0.25 0.00 0.00 0.00 4 0.00 1.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 5 0.00 0.25 0.50 0.25 0.00 0.00 6 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 1.00

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
