Matching values between two arrays of hashes.
Dump that data into a database and use 'SELECT * FROM subnets, filersinfo WHERE subnets.location_id = filersinfo.location_id' to get all the records where location_id matches in both tables.

A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James
