Dear Wise Monks

I am having trouble getting an anonymous sub routine to execute.

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; my %new_resolvers = ( 'dns-one' => [ "\tdns-apple" , "\tdns-banana" , "\tdns-shoe" ] , 'dns-extern' => [ sub { my $ip = shift or die "you need to pass in IP address"; my @array; open ( PIPE, "./|" ) or die __FILE__ . " [" . __LINE__ . "] could not open get_re$!"; while ( <PIPE> ) { chomp; last if /not a one of our IP addresses/; push ( @array, $_ ); } return reverse @array; } ] ); for my $dns_server ( keys %new_resolvers ) { print "getting new resolvers for dns server $dns_server\n"; my $resolvers = join "\n", @{$new_resolvers{$dns_server}} +; print "$resolvers\n\n"; }

When I run my script I get this output ...

getting new resolvers for dns server dns-extern CODE(0x92fe808) getting new resolvers for dns server dns-one dns-apple dns-banana dns-shoe

What am I doing wrong here? How do I invoke the anonymous sub? Thank you.
