in reply to Passing a scalar to a subroutine

Passing arguments to subroutines in explained in perlintro and perlsub. To make it short, all the arguments are available in the special variable of name @_.

So your sub should start like this:

sub verification { my $value = shift; # accesses @_ ...

See also: shift.
