So you need to

  • open the file
  • skip the first two line
  • while there is more data in the file:
    • split each line in two parts, a unique region identifier a data type and possibly a record count.
    • store the last two values in a hash of hashes keyed on region and column name
  • Iterate over the keys and do whatever it is you want to do with them

Have a go at coding that up, if it doesn't work for you, bring your issue to the forum and we'll do our best, but we are a teaching monastery, not a code writing service

print "Good ",qw(night morning afternoon evening)[(localtime)[2]/6]," fellow monks."
