in reply to Passing a scalar to a subroutine

Passing arguments to subroutines in explained in perlintro and perlsub. To make it short, all the arguments are available in the special variable of name @_.

So your sub should start like this:

sub verification { my $value = shift; # accesses @_ ...

See also: shift.

    Outstanding, thanks for the help, it worked. Thanks for also providing me with some material to read on subroutines, I'm sure they'll be helpful with what I'm working on.
