Hello.

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:
http://search.cpan.org/search?dist=Lingua-EN-Sentence

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
