slightly changed solution of "thegeek"

$ cat
# put all the ip into a hash as key, and counts as value.
while(<>)  {
    $hash{$1}++ if /^([^ ]*)/;
# print the hash.
map { print "$_ matches $hash{$_}\n" } sort {$hash{$a} <=> $hash{$b}} keys %hash;

$ perl sample matches 1 matches 1 matches 2 matches 3 matches 4
