hi soperl,

try this:
=========================================
<html>
<head>
      <title>Untitled</title>
      <META http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1251">
</head>

<body bgcolor=ffffff topmargin=0 leftmargin=0 marginwidth=0 marginheight=0>
<script>
function runit()
{
      var mytext1=document.getElementById("t1");
      var mytext2=document.getElementById("t2");
      var mytextArr=mytext1.innerHTML.split("\n");
      mytextArr.sort();
      
      mytext2.innerHTML=mytextArr.join("\n");
}
</script>
<textarea id=t1 style=height:300px>
Charles Letchev
Edmund Casparot
Ray Davies da Silva
Ronaldo Marcado
Noites e Dias da Silva
Maria Camilla Freindlich
Kenshin Himura
Satoro Sato
Jane Austin
Miguel da Silva
Edmund Casparot
Ronaldo marcado
Jane Austin
Charles Letchev
</textarea>

<textarea id=t2 style=height:300px>
</textarea>

<button onclick=runit()>runit</button>

so what you want is to just put the number of times each name shows up in textarea 1, in textarea 2?

this is probably a bad way to do it, but it'd work:

you'd make textarea 1 a string...

var text1 = document.forms[0].elements[0]; //assuming its the first eleemnt in the form
var text2 = document.forms[0].elements[1]; //same deal

var text1_names = text1.value.split('\n');

for (var a=0;a<text1_names.length;a++){
  var names[a] = 0;
  for (var b=0;b<text1_names.length;b++){
    if (text1_names[a] == text1_names[b]){
      var name[b]=text1_name[b];
      names[b]++;
}}}
for (var c=0;c<name.length;c++)
  text2.value += names[c] + " " + name[c] + "\n";


i think that should work, though i haven't tested it

Dear devic,

Your function works fine, but I would need the frequencies side by side of names.

----------------------------------


Dear ren_b,

Yes, but deleting the lines in duplicate.

Please complete your function() to be most clear to me.

-----------------------------------

<textarea id=t2 style=height:300px;width:400px;></textarea>
<div id=tmpspan style=display:none;></div><br>
<button onclick=runit()>runit</button>
</body>
</html>

======================================
if you want to be "Ronaldo marcado" not equal to "Ronaldo Marcado" (case-sensitive)
then remove .toLowerCase()
