Solved yet another UVA problem: Wetlands of Florida. Feels good. One odd thing in this problem was handling the input. In the solution, I initially went with the recursive DFS which failed on my test case containing a 99x99 'W' wetlands map. I changed to follow one of the good implementations of Chefhack by msasha. Some implementations are so very user friendly than machine friendly.
Many thanks to the codechef CHEFHACK editorial to list this problem.
