in reply to using external file for hashes

One suggestion: Since your hash keys are just 0-based indices, why not make them arrays?

$Real_time{0} == $Real_time[0] == 'No'

    some of the hashes are not zero based. I'm working with a legacy program.

      I see. How about using Data::Dumper to make a file of your hashes? Then read this file in (split each structure based on some delimiter you add during the write process and rebuild hashes w/ eval like described in the answers to Read the Dumper data back to a hash.
        Check also Unexpected Data::Dumper results if your hashes contain references that might point to the same thing.
