imports everything into that module, even subs/scalars

The advice in What_Not_to_Export regarding scalars is this

Do not export variable names. Just because Exporter lets you do that, it does not mean you should.
 @EXPORT_OK = qw($svar @avar %hvar); # DON'T!
Exporting variables is not a good idea. They can change under the hood, provoking horrible effects at-a-distance that are too hard to track and to fix. Trust me: they are not worth it. To provide the capability to set/get class-wide settings, it is best instead to provide accessors as subroutines or class methods instead.

Which is where I think this node started with the problem

$userid = $manageusers::LoggedOn_user_id;

and I think you were on the right path here in eliminating the global variables

I also changed $LoggedOn_user_id to a function call &GetLoggedOn_user_id to deliver the number to the other module and it still does not work.

I think you now know to make it work.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
