( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
my ( $foo, %bar, $bax ); is scoped within the else. It doesn't look like Initialize_child exists within that scope. I think there are two options, of which I think only one would be recomended.

1) pass the variables to the sub (recomended)
2) create the sub within the else block (not recomended).

Just to further explain, here's some example code that will give you the same results.

# $foo and $bar are not accessable outside of this scope { my ($foo, $bar) = qw(Hello world); DoSomething(); } # this is outside of the above scope so it can not access $foo and $ba +r sub DoSomething { print "$foo $bar\n"; }
Or if it existed inside the scope (not recomended, just for demonstrative purposes)
# $foo and $bar are not accessable outside of this scope { my ($foo, $bar) = qw(Hello world); DoSomething(); # this is inside the scope so it can access $foo and $bar sub DoSomething { print "$foo $bar\n"; } }
Hope this helps

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.
