Hi, I am trying to make a word frequency counter using PERL.
Basically, I need to read in a text file and print out to stdout a list of all the unique words in the file and how many times they appear in descending order. I am new to PERL and just got this program working in C by using a binary search tree someone on this board suggested. :-)
I was wondering if anyone could tell me if binary trees and linked lists can be created in PERL or what anyone thinks would be the best way of implementing this program in PERL?
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
