I think you may have misunderstood the intent of the original subroutine. Given an integer, it should produce a list of three values: red, green, and blue. It does not produce anything like "0000FF"; rather, given 0x0000FF (note the difference, BTW), it should produce the list (0, 0, 255). Which it does.

Where you say that it is returning 00255; it actually is not. It's returning a list containing (0, 0, 255), and when you print that out, it's getting automatically joined on the empty string, and so you see 00255.

But the actual usage is like:

my($red, $green, $blue) = hexa_triplet(0x0000FF);
And then the $red, $green, and $blue would be passed into GD, since that's what the OP needed this for.
