in reply to variable scope within eval{}

insert_budget_line does probably not return what you think it does. Did you check?

    Yes I did and it works fine in the eval block but is invisible when passed to the sub

      Easy enough to prove it works:

      >perl -wMstrict -le "my $bl_id; my @bly_id; sub insert_budget_line { return 'foo'; } sub insert_budget_line_year { return @_[1,0]; } eval { $bl_id = insert_budget_line(); @bly_id = insert_budget_line_year(bl_id => $bl_id); }; print qq{@bly_id}; " foo bl_id

      How is your  insert_budget_line_year function defined?

      Can you post the relevant code of the sub you call?
