( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I believe I need to make a hash of team containing an array of (unique)location containing an array of tools and their number. Or maybe a hash of hashes of hashes? I've been trying just about every permutation I can think of for days.

Pass your required output to an XML parser that uses data structures and see what it produces; and then mimic it:

#! perl -slw use strict; use Data::Dump qw[ pp ]; use XML::Simple; my $xml = XMLin( \*DATA, KeepRoot => 1, NoAttr => 1 ); pp $xml; print XMLout( $xml, KeepRoot => 1, NoAttr => 1 ); __DATA__ <ToolLocations> <ToolLocation> <LocationName>location_4</LocationName> <ToolList> <Tool> <ToolName>tool_2</ToolName> <ToolNum>5</ToolNum> </Tool> <Tool> <ToolName>tool_5</ToolName> <ToolNum>3</ToolNum> </Tool> </ToolList> </ToolLocation> </ToolLocations>

Produces:

C:\test>1001808 { ToolLocations => { ToolLocation => { LocationName => "location_4", ToolList => { Tool => [ { ToolName => "tool_2", ToolNum => 5 }, { ToolName => "tool_5", ToolNum => 3 }, ], }, }, }, } <ToolLocations> <ToolLocation> <LocationName>location_4</LocationName> <ToolList> <Tool> <ToolName>tool_2</ToolName> <ToolNum>5</ToolNum> </Tool> <Tool> <ToolName>tool_5</ToolName> <ToolNum>3</ToolNum> </Tool> </ToolList> </ToolLocation> </ToolLocations>

That takes your required output as input, converts it to a data structure and then converts it back successfully. So now you know what the data structure needs to look like.


With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

RIP Neil Armstrong

    [LanX]: Discipulus++ # Bi-Shop
    [Eily]: is the Bishop of hearts higher or lower ranked than the Jack?
    [ambrus]: Higher.
    [Eily]: Discipulus what's the merchandise? Other bi-people?
    [1nickt]: marto would like to hear that. Of course he speaks very deliberately and dramatically, allowing pauses between words, so if anybody could pull it off it would be him, or someone impersonating him ...
    [Eily]: Discipulus that's a chess joke BTW right? Because bishops don't walk straight :D
    [choroba]: stop making chessy jokes about bishops!
    [choroba]: I mean cheesy
    [LanX]: lol
    [ambrus]: no, the chess bishop itself is a joke on real bi-shops
