in reply to Pushing Array ref to array

The problem is that each entry in @result is a reference to @row, but because @row is declared at the top of the code, you change the contents of @row each time through. Instead, you need to create a new variable each time through the loop.

This is quite easy:

while (my @row = $sth->fetchrow_array()) { ... }

And you should be able to delete the my @row; line at the top of the code.

Here's something that may help you understand better: Lexical scoping like a fox.

[Corion]: Cosmic37: No, but maybe $mydt doesn't contain what you think it does, or it contains characters that are special in a regular expression? Try if( $line =~ /\Q$mydt\E/) { ... for a literal match
[Cosmic37]: I mean string grrr
[Corion]: Maybe add an else branch in which you print what the values of $line and $mydt are?
[Cosmic37]: ah thank you I will try
[Cosmic37]: you are right $mydt did not contain what I expected... :-D I will now think :-D
