Every poster was correct pointing out that $session was not defined in my calling program. Duh!

So, I tried this first:

my $logged_in = write_session( $user ); my $session = CGI::Session->load(); print Dumper($logged_in, $session->param('user'));

which I thought would be the proper way to do it, but ended up following your advice with:

my $session = new CGI::Session(); my $logged_in = write_session( $session, $user ); print Dumper($logged_in, $session->param('user'));

which did the trick. Thanks.
