Hi, with the following code replacing your main code,
my @tides = ( { time_in_seconds => 0, high_low => 'Unknown', time => 'Unknown', } ); foreach my $tides (@{$data->{data}->{item}}) { if($tides->{date} eq $today_date) { $tides->{highlow} =~ s/L/Low/; $tides->{highlow} =~ s/H/High/; my $format_date = "$tides->{date} $tides->{time}"; my $date_to_seconds = str2time($format_date); #print " Test: ".$tides->{highlow}, " Tide at: ", $tides->{time}, + "\n"; $tides->{time_in_seconds} = $date_to_seconds; push @tides, $tides; } } push @tides, { time_in_seconds => $now_in_seconds + 10000000, highlow => 'Unknown', time => 'Unknown', }; my @future_tides = grep { $_->{time_in_seconds} >= $now_in_seconds } @ +tides; my @past_tides = grep { $_->{time_in_seconds} < $now_in_seconds } @ +tides; my $next_tide = $future_tides[0]; my $previous_tide = $past_tides[ -1]; print "Next tide: ", $next_tide->{highlow}, " Tide at: ", $next_tide-> +{time}, "\n"; print "iPrevious tide: ", $previous_tide->{highlow}, " Tide at: ", $pr +evious_tide->{time}, "\n"; exit;
I get

2013/03/27, 06:05 AM - Now in Seconds is: 1364378700 Next tide: Low Tide at: 06:20 AM Previous tide: High Tide at: 12:21 AM
which might be close to what you wish. UPDATE Updated code to display something whatever the 'now' time is.
