in reply to Passing a reference from a subroutine.

Try changing:

return @\@AoA;

to

return \@AoA;

When your only tool is a hammer, all problems look like your thumb.

    Sorry, that was a typo, and even with "return \@AoA;" it still doesn’t work.

      The syntax is clearly correct (as shown in the example below). So if you're getting the proper data with Dumper in your for loop, then you're likely damaging the data between the Dumper call and your return statement.

      $ cat t.pl #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; sub get_data { my $data = shift; my @AoA = (1 .. $data); return \@AoA; } my $aref = get_data(5); print join(", ", @$aref), "\n"; marco@Boink:/Work/Perl/Sudoku $ perl t.pl 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

      ...roboticus

        Maybe how I am formatting the data is not conventional right?
        push @{ $AoA[$c] },$$one_num, $$account_num, $name, $new_name, $plano +, $passdate, $todays_date, $descont, $firm, $value, $thetotal, $commi +ted;
