The easiest approach is to traverse your list of locations and compute the distaance of each location from your designated position. To get locations of zip codes, try Geo::Coder::US:
use Geo::Coder::US; Geo::Coder::US->set_db( "geocoder.db" ); my (\$ora) = Geo::Coder::US->geocode( "1005 Gravenstein Hwy N, 95472" ); print "O'Reilly is located at \$ora->{lat} degrees north, " "\$ora->{long} degrees east.\n";
To compute distances, use Geo::Ellipsoid:
use Geo::Ellipsoid; \$geo = Geo::Ellipsoid->new(ellipsoid=>'NAD27', units=>'degrees'); @origin = ( 37.619002, -122.374843 ); # SFO @dest = ( 33.942536, -118.408074 ); # LAX ( \$range, \$bearing ) = \$geo->to( @origin, @dest ); (\$lat,\$lon) = \$geo->at( @origin, 45.0, 2000 ); ( \$x, \$y ) = \$geo->displacement( @origin, \$lat, \$lon ); @pos = \$geo->location( \$lat, \$lon, \$x, \$y );

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

• 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.
• Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
• You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
 For: Use: & & < < > > [ [ ] ]
• Link using PerlMonks shortcuts! What shortcuts can I use for linking?
