If you look at each fragment of your data, you'll probably realise how it's structured naturally. Once you've imported it, then the challenge is to restructure as required to generate the required output.

The first layer is your IP address. These fit naturally in to a hash. The second layer is domains, which will likewise be a good fit in a hash. The third is a list of times, and since you're probably not referencing them directly, these are array elements. For example:
my %data; $data{$ip_address}{$domain} = [ $time1, $time2, $time3 ]; push (@{$data{$ip_address}{$domain}}, $time4); # ... foreach my $time (@{$data{$ip_address}{$domain}}) { # ... }
So what you have is a hash of hash of arrays or HoHoA.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
