Maybe you can adapt something like this...

use warnings; use strict; my %log; while (my $line = <DATA>){ chomp $line; next unless length $line; my ($event, $time) = split / at /, $line; push @{$log{$event}}, $time; } for my $key (keys %log){ print $key, ${$log{$key}}[0] ? " at ${$log{$key}}[0]" : ''; print "\nThe above event occurred ", $#{$log{$key}}, " additional +times.\n"; } __DATA__ User logged in successfully at 10:35:33 User logged in successfully at 10:35:34 User logged in successfully at 10:35:35 Error: Login failure! User logged in successfully at 10:35:37 Error: Login failure! Error: System failure at 01:23:22 Error: System failure at 01:23:40 User logged in successfully at 10:35:39 Error: System failure at 01:23:41

Yields: (on my system, output order may vary.)

Error: Login failure!
The above event occurred 1 additional times.
Error: System failure at 01:23:22
The above event occurred 2 additional times.
User logged in successfully at 10:35:33
The above event occurred 4 additional times.
