Assuming you have data in given format. It would be easy to remember the parent. You don't need recursion in that case. You don't even need to mention the name of the parent. In the ouptut, you are given the order,level and parent information. Which you can format the way you like.
use strict; use warnings; my %Entry; $Entry{-1} = ''; my @list; my $id; while(<DATA>){ chomp; last if /OUTPUT/; my $entry = $1 if /\b(\w+)$/; my $level = () = $_ =~ m[\-]g; my $item; $Entry{$level} = $entry; #Remember the last entry $item->{id} = ++$id; $item->{name} = $entry; $item->{parent} = $Entry{$level-1}; $item->{level} = $level; push @list,$item; } foreach my $item (@list){ print join "|", map { $item->{$_} } qw(id level name parent); print "\n"; } __DATA__ foo ->bar -->troz ->narf __OUTPUT__ 1|0|foo| 2|1|bar|foo 3|2|troz|bar 4|1|narf|foo

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
