Hi.
I'm looking for a way to find the number of occurances of a word in a webpage.
I do something like this:

use LWP::Simple;
$doc = get 'http://www.freebsd.org/'

What I'd like to do now is to find out how many "and" there is in this webpage that I currently have in the $doc variable.
Anyone have a clue on how to to this? I'll figure it out eventually by myself but since there are some smart people here I
thought I'd ask.

why did you give me a b?

you have already noticed that people give you 'A's for your answers, which are not as good, why should you give me a B, without telling me what is wrong with my answer?

Hi.
Nothing is wrong with your answer. I thought you gave me a good answer and since "B" was "Good" I thought that was appropriate.
The answer I got was short, sweet and to the point but there was nothing extra or special. Had there been a more fine-grained scale 1-10 or 1-5 You would have gotten a higher mark(6-7 or 4 respectivly), but in my opinion there is a difference between "Good" and "Excellent".

I'm not impossible however. Do you still feel that the grade is inappropriate and wrong and there is a way to change it I can do that. I really did appriciate your help.
