in reply to how to iterate over multiple hashes with same key value

I see two options:

  1. As per your script, you populate %hash and %population%location in such a way that they have the same keys. So you could just move the print statement from your "locations" loop into the "users" loop (it would also make sense to rename %hash to %users).
  2. Alternatively, you could add another dimension to your %hash such that you store both times and locations in the hash. For example:
    push (@{$hash{$word2}{'times'}},$word1); push (@{$hash{$word2}{'locations'}},$word3);
    This way you would keep the data closer together.

EDIT: Changed %population to %location (thanks kcott)
