I don't understand your question. If the data is sorted as Loops said, his solution should work for you.

    I am sorry, is that at the end of processing I have to pass the values as this:
    $template->param('data', $results);
      my $results; my $type; for my $entry (@$VAR1) { if ( $entry->{type} ne $type ) { $type = $entry->{type}; push @$results, "$type\n"; } push @$results, "\t$entry->{name} - $entry->{reference}\n"; }
      Then this should do it.
        That was my post above and it occurred to me that you probably want $results as a string to be printed in a web page. If so, I might suggest something like this.
        my $results = "Results: "; my $type; for my $entry (@$VAR1) { if ( $entry->{type} ne $type ) { $type = $entry->{type}; $results .= "$type<br />"; } $results .= "&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;$entry->{name} - $entry->{refer +ence}<br />"; }

        Update: Now that I've thought about it, it seems you are using HTML::Template or something like it to display your data. And I'm not familiar with that but you probably do want to pass it a structure and not a string.
