Most common ship names

After logging 13371 Class B Message 24 and 44676  Class B Message  5 AIS messages received from AISHUB including my own AIS feed with my version of aisparser, these are the most common transmitted names. Names were exported to CSV and cleaned for punctuation characters, and unnecessary spaces.

This then was fed through the following Unix pipe:


cat allnames.txt | tr -s '[:punct:]' | tr '[:punct:]' ' ' | tr '/' ' ' | tr -s ' ' | tr -s '^ ' |sort | uniq -ci | sort -rn > wordanalysis
