You should write like this because of Lexical scoping like a fox, Variable Scoping in Perl: the basics

sub sa_details { my $dbh = shift; my @uids; $dbh->dbcmd("SELECT userid FROM user"); $dbh->dbsqlexec or die "Can't execute SQL statement:\n"; while( $dbh->dbresults != NO_MORE_RESULTS ){ while( my @row = $dbh->dbnextrow ){ push @uids, $row[0]; } } return @uids; } my @array = sa_details( Sybase::DBlib->new( "user", "passwd", "host", ) );

Or you could write

sub sa_details { my $dbh = shift; $dbh->nsql( "SELECT userid FROM user", "ARRAY" ); } my @arry = sa_details( Sybase::DBlib->new( "user", "passwd", "host", ) ); $DB_ERROR and die $DB_ERROR; ## $Sybase::DBlib::DB_ERROR and die $Sybase::DBlib::DB_ERROR;
