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.
