in thread remove node information by searching tag element.

Sorry still you didn't understand my problem I think, In the above input data as I provided, in that data number tag is same in first data node and third data node, but reaming information is different only number tag is same. I need to delete the entire node if number tag element is same in any node. I am printing $info into new file so before printing into new file I need to eliminate duplicate nodes by using number tag. I hope now you understand clearly, I posted my expected result also. can you suggest me.

    Given your output data, the approach I provided will do the job. $key should be the 'number tag element'. Don't add the results if you have already seen the number.

    This block of code illustrates the technique.

    my @data = qw( a b 3 d a f b ); my %seen; for ( @data ) { print $_, "\n" unless $seen{$_}++; } __DATA__ a b 3 d f

    You should be able to apply this technique to your problem space.
