You seem confused about what is returned from a function and the stuff that is printed to the screen/browser. That said, if I understand you correctly you want something like the following, leave the second() function as above.
if($tran eq 'edit'){ second(common($val_1, $val_2)); } else{ first(common($val_1, $val_2)); } sub common{ my $arg_1 = shift; my $arg_2 = shift; my $val_1 = "Tested"; my $val_2 = "Passed"; return ($arg_1,$arg_2,$val_1,$val_1); } sub first { my ($arg_1, $arg_2, $val_3, $val_4) = @_; print "I've got::: Val 1=$arg_1 and Val 2=$arg_2<br>\n"; print "<br>And I have::: Val 3=$val_3 and Val 4=$val_4<br>\n"; print "<br><a href=\"pass.pl?tran=edit\">Edit X</a>\n"; }

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
