in thread Passing a reference from a subroutine.

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

    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;

[LanX]: the interview was with the guy who designed the process
[LanX]: in the 70s
[GotToBTru]: so the font on the card is probably NOT Comic Sans
