Firstly, grep is excessive. Since your keys are upper-case, simply use uc to upper-case things before matching.

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; my @words; while (<STDIN>) { push @words, split /\s/ } my %wordscore = scrabble_score(@words); for (sort keys %wordscore) { print qq/"$_" = $wordscore{$_} points\n/; } sub scrabble_score { my %value = ( A => 1, F => 4, K => 5, P => 3, U => 1, Z => 1 +0, B => 2, G => 2, L => 1, Q => 10, V => 4, C => 3, H => 4, M => 3, R => 1, W => 4, D => 2, I => 1, N => 1, S => 1, X => 8, E => 1, J => 8, O => 1, T => 1, Y => 4 ); my %score; for (@_) { my @letter = split "", uc $_; my $word = $_; $score{$word} = 0; for (@letter) { $score{$word}+=$value{$_} } } return %score; }
Note that it reads STDIN until EOF -- Ctrl-D on Unix/Linux and Ctrl-Z on Windows (followed by Enter on some of both types of systems). Or you can pipe in a word list... but you needn't have one word per line, as long as you use space between them.

Also, because of how hashes function, it will only print one instance of each word.

By the way, you aren't checking to make sure the word is possible in Scrabble: there are a limited quantity of each letter... :)

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
