There’s more than one way to do it — linux

The original problem:

Hi,

I have a file in this format of words:

joe jill bill bob frank tom harry

and want to convert the file to this format:

joe
jill
bill
bob
frank
tom
harry

Is there an easy way to this? The file I have has hundreds of entries.
Thanks
Mike

Several proposed solutions

for word in `cat file`; do; echo $word; done > new_file
for x in `cat file`; do echo $x; done
sed -ri 's/[ \t]+/\n/g' file
tr ' ' '\012' < infile > outfile
fmt -w 1 filename > newfile
perl -p040 -l12 -e 'chomp' filename
perl -p040 -e 's/\s/\n/' filename
