Yet another way to do it, which might be way faster if you have very few words to check (in your example you have only one, but this might be done in a loop) is to do it the other way around. Collect the words to be tested first, and then check if the any of the words in your dictionary match:

my @words = get_words_to_check(); my %hash = map { $_ => 1 } @words; while (my $line = <>) { chomp $line; delete $hash{$line} if exists $hash{$line}; # The if exists isn't re +quired here, but it does make it look cleaner } my @good_words = grep { exists $hash{$_} } @words; # Keep the original + order my @good_words_2 = keys %hash; # Don't care about the original order

Or, if borth word lists are sorted, something like this might work:

my $index = 0; LINE: while (my $line = <>) { chomp $line; # While the word in the dictionary is past (or equal) to the word to + check while ($line ge $words[$index]) { # Store the word as OK, unless it is equal to the current dict wor +d push @good_words, $words[$index] unless $line eq $words[$index]; # Use the next word from the list of words to check, if any last LINE if ++$index == @words; } }

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).
