Answer: How do I pass a database handle in DBI between subroutines?
contributed by lhoward

Just like you would any other object... See my example below showing passing a database handle in and out of 2 functions.

my $dbh=bar(); foo($dbh); sub foo{ my $dbh=shift; # do something with the database handle.... } sub bar{ my $dbh=DBI->connect(...... return $dbh; }

    [karlgoethebier]: no typo
    [marioroy]: At the Fransiscan monastery, got stuck up high in a tree from pruning and the chainsaw with large branch fell and broke the latter, but not me fortunately. Was stuck there for a while until a firetruck came by.
    [Corion]: marioroy: So you live dangerously ...
    [Lady_Aleena]: s/latter/ladder/; # ? marioroy
    [karlgoethebier]: marioroy: Praise the Lord
    [marioroy]: Well, that's why there must be angels around, invisible or not.
    [marioroy]: Lady_Aleena yes, ladder.
    [marioroy]: Corion, no not intentionally. not at all.
