Hi ,

The $ref in the sub foo where you get it and I guess , from the way you populate your hash in the sub bar , you should be getting the location by having
sub foo { my $location_text = $locations('id'); }


The passing of hash can be through a reference too like

sub bar { return \%locations; } sub foo { $locations = &bar($dbh); print "The reference returned from bar is : [$locations] +\n"; %location_Names = %$locations; }


You can use some debugging to see the hash values in course of program like use Data::Dumper which will give you the hash's values in course of your program in tree forms itself , so that it shall be easy and helpful

  • 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 editor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
