A solution to last week's challenge can be found here!
This week's challenge comes to us from @BuQu - thanks so much for the contribution!
Using the provided input, count the number of times each word appears in the text. Then, sort the words in descending order and show the percentage of that word's use against the total word count.
Hint: Make sure there are no truncated fields in your input.
Bonus: Use the download tool to get text directly from the website instead of using the text file.
I seemed to be getting a different set of results from the challenge answer file. Maybe someone can help me figure out where I went wrong.
After solving this I see that the files have been updated. But here's my response as-is.
I had one minor variation between my solution and the provided answer, in that the answer had an additional line of data. The answer contained a row where the Word was a Null value.
There was much variation between my solution using the provided data set and downloading the data directly from the provided URL. A cursory examination revealed that in some lines, words had been hyphenated in the provided data but not in the downloaded data.
Anywho, lunch break is over.
