in reply to data stuctures

Replace the {} in your hash definition with ()... If you wanted a hashref, you would use {}, but assign to a scalar:
$rims = { GROUP=>$string, LNAME=>$string, INITS=>$string, MBRID=>$string, M_DOB=>$string, DEPCD=>$string, P_FNAME=>$string, P_DOB=>$string, P_SEX=>$string, };
update:
Thanks to ikegami for pointing out the bigger problem with your code. The change I suggested will definitely fix your warning but will definitely not make your code do what you expect.

[Lady_Aleena]: I don't want to have to do: alpha_menu($hash, undef, $type);
[Lady_Aleena]: Or what Discipulus said.
[shmem]: Lady_Aleena: geany supports ctags.
[Discipulus]: a good compromise can be my ($need, $opts_ref) = @_ a scalar and an hash reference
[Discipulus]: see you monks!
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, let me get this sub rewritten, then I will look into how to use ctags in geany. Deal? 8)
[shmem]: Discipulus: yeah, that might eventually prepare the path for OO ;-)
[Lady_Aleena]: See you, Discipulus.
[shmem]: Lady_Aleena: that's up to you. I only wanted to show you a path that might be more comforting than command line grep ;-)
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, I don't think any of my modules could be converted to OO. They are too procedural.
