In one line. write a script to read stdin (or variable number of file
arguments) that splits the input into words (non-whitespace consecutive
characters), and outputs, sorted, each unique word and the number of times
it occurs.


Bonus marks for not using

1)       cheat mechanisms (such as '||') which fudge the one line

2)       round brackets

3)       the same perl function more than once
