( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hi, with the following code replacing your main code,
my @tides = ( { time_in_seconds => 0, high_low => 'Unknown', time => 'Unknown', } ); foreach my $tides (@{$data->{data}->{item}}) { if($tides->{date} eq $today_date) { $tides->{highlow} =~ s/L/Low/; $tides->{highlow} =~ s/H/High/; my $format_date = "$tides->{date} $tides->{time}"; my $date_to_seconds = str2time($format_date); #print " Test: ".$tides->{highlow}, " Tide at: ", $tides->{time}, + "\n"; $tides->{time_in_seconds} = $date_to_seconds; push @tides, $tides; } } push @tides, { time_in_seconds => $now_in_seconds + 10000000, highlow => 'Unknown', time => 'Unknown', }; my @future_tides = grep { $_->{time_in_seconds} >= $now_in_seconds } @ +tides; my @past_tides = grep { $_->{time_in_seconds} < $now_in_seconds } @ +tides; my $next_tide = $future_tides[0]; my $previous_tide = $past_tides[ -1]; print "Next tide: ", $next_tide->{highlow}, " Tide at: ", $next_tide-> +{time}, "\n"; print "iPrevious tide: ", $previous_tide->{highlow}, " Tide at: ", $pr +evious_tide->{time}, "\n"; exit;
I get

2013/03/27, 06:05 AM - Now in Seconds is: 1364378700 Next tide: Low Tide at: 06:20 AM Previous tide: High Tide at: 12:21 AM
which might be close to what you wish. UPDATE Updated code to display something whatever the 'now' time is.

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.
