( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I like this tutorial. Good info. I did find a few minor errors, however, which I'll enumerate below.

my @lines = map { split } <FILE>;

should probably be

my @words = map { split } <FILE>;

Check all your uses of "it's". "It's" is a contraction of "it is". The possessive is "its". So, any time you're showing possession (such as in "split uses whitespace as it's default delimiter, and the special variable $_ as it's default variable"), "it's" should be "its". Ain't English wunnerful?

Your third code sample, "my @lines = map { split(/\s/, $_) } <FILE>;", is not equivalent to the second. split(/\s/, $_) is not the same as raw split. It should be split(' ', $_), taking advantage of the special meaning of ' ' inside split.

Toward the end, you say, "chomp returns true or false". Not quite correct. chomp returns the number of characters it chomped.

And finally, a few misspellings, if you don't mind:

"lightening" should be "lightning"
"usefull" should be "useful"
"headeaches" should be "headaches"
"seperated" should be "separated"

Overall, good stuff. Have a Scooby snack on me.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
