in reply to Replacing a list with one variable

It seems that the IDs parameter requires a reference to an array so you need to split your string $bookIDList into an array, the brackets will then turn that into a reference:

my $bookIDList = "abc,ghj,zxc,bnm,qwe,rty,iop,sdf,ert"; my $param = { IDs => [ split /,/, $bookIDList ], sort => "AUTHOR", maxResults => 100 };

or you build a list in the first place and feed a reference to that list:

my @bookIDList = ( "abc", "ghj", "zxc", "bnm", "qwe", "rty", "iop", "s +df", "ert" ); my $param = { IDs => \@bookIDList, sort => "AUTHOR", maxResults => 100 };
