It seems each record now ends with a blank line, rather than the word “end” as in the OP. And each record is a collection of lines of the form key = value. So we add another loop, and create a hash in which each key is the storeId (as before), but each value is a (reference to a) nested hash of key/value pairs:

#! perl use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dump qw( pp ); my $var = <<END_RECORDS; storeId = 12 phoneNumber = (270) 111-1111 nameString = My Store1 isOutOfStock = true isReplenishable = true isNotAvailable = false availbilityCode = 0 stockStatus = Out of stock distance = 4.41 city = Highland Village stateCode = TX zipCode = 11111 fullStreet = some random street address storeTypeId = 1 isStorePUTEligible = true walmartExpressStore = false canAddToCart = false storeId = 500 phoneNumber = (270) 111-1111 nameString = my store2 isOutOfStock = true isReplenishable = true isNotAvailable = false availbilityCode = 0 stockStatus = In stock distance = 6.82 city = Roanoke stateCode = TX zipCode = 76262 fullStreet = some random street address storeTypeId = 1 isStorePUTEligible = true walmartExpressStore = false canAddToCart = false END_RECORDS my %hash; while ($var =~ /storeId = (\d+)\s+(.*?)\n(?:\n|$)/gs) { my ($key, $val) = ($1, $2); my %h; $h{$1} = $2 while $val =~ /(\S+)\s*=\s*(.*?)\n/g; $hash{$key} = { %h }; } print "storeID = $_\n", pp($hash{$_}), "\n" for grep { exists $hash{$_}->{stockStatus} && $hash{$_}->{stockStatus} =~ /(?:In|Limited) Stock/i +} keys %hash;

Output:

2:42 >perl 523_SoPW.pl storeID = 500 { availbilityCode => 0, city => "Roanoke", distance => 6.82, fullStreet => "some random street address", isNotAvailable => "false", isOutOfStock => "true", isReplenishable => "true", isStorePUTEligible => "true", nameString => "my store2", phoneNumber => "(270) 111-1111", stateCode => "TX", stockStatus => "In stock", storeTypeId => 1, walmartExpressStore => "false", zipCode => 76262, } 2:42 >

Hope that helps,
