adding data through a submit button Can't Post

I want to add several rooms for one location.
I am getting location through
$loc = $query->param('nameoftextbox'); #from a different form
In perl script,
I have a textbox and a submit button. when i enter 'data' in the textbox and click on a submit button it should add a data to the location. I am getting location through $loc
variable. Everytime i click on submit button,
it is going to the same form so that the user can add more data to the location. My code
if ($conf) { #entered data in the textbox
In HTML, the submit button is
<input type = "submit" name ="build" action
="sameform"> #goes to the same form
i am loosing the $loc. For every submit, i have to
give <input type = "hidden" name = "getvalue"
value = "$loc">
If i had to add 5 rooms to location, i have to put 5 hidden fields to get the location.
Is there a better way of doing it.
Please help me
