in reply to Making variables visible between calls.

Your anonymous subroutine can't see $var since it's compiled in a lexical scope separate from where it's executed. But it can have values passed into it as arguments.

sub create_f { my $func = shift; return sub { my $var = "xpto"; $func->( $var ); } } my $function = create_f( sub { print ">> $_[0] <<\n" } ); $function->();

Update: And if you want to specify the value at runtime, it's as easy as passing it into create_f.

sub create_f { my $func = shift; my $var = shift; return sub { $func->( $var ); } } my $function = create_f( sub { print ">> $_[0] <<\n" }, 'xpto' ); $function->();
