I have some English text which I want to process.
I seem to be having difficulties splitting the text into sentences.

Can someone here suggest a code for that?

Check out a perl module I wrote and is available in CPAN:

The module's name is Lingua::EN::Sentence

Note that there is another module in CPAN trying to do the same (but in my opinion fails in many places where mine doesn't) - and its name is Text::Sentence

        use Lingua::EN::Sentence qw( get_sentences add_acronyms );

        add_acronyms('lt','gen');               ## adding support for 'Lt. Gen.'
        my $sentences=get_sentences($text);     ## Get the sentences.
        foreach my $sentence (@$sentences) {
                ## do something with $sentence
