I was playing around with this and noticed a harmless but problematic side-effect of the way you construct the hash.

%scores = ( map { $_ => 1 } qw( A E I L N O R S T U ), map { $_ => 2 } qw( B D G ), map { $_ => 3 } qw( C M P ), map { $_ => 4 } qw( F H V W Y ), map { $_ => 5 } qw( K ), map { $_ => 8 } qw( J X ), map { $_ => 10 } qw( Q Z ), ); print join($", sort keys %scores), $/; __END__ 10 2 3 4 5 8 A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

Since you're filtering for letters, the numbers don't get picked up, but the maps are having a side-effect mapping of the other maps below them. Parens around the maps seems to fix it.

I also learned something from your example. I would have predicted that the last unless defined would not work right on empty input b/c $_ still contains a "\n" which would be defined. I would have been wrong.

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.
