Ok, so I modified you example a little bit. Didn't change anything except the way it's structured. The way you did it makes sense but is a little hard for me to read, and possibly maintain later if I ever have to change something.

Here is what I modified to:
for (my $x = $#temp; $x >= 0; $x--) { if ( substr($temp[$x-1][0], 0, -1) eq substr($temp[$x][0], 0, -1)) { $temp[$x-1][1] += $temp[$x][1]; splice @temp, $x, 1; } }
Does the same thing just a little more long winded and simpler for a noob..

Thanks Again for Your Help,
