Do you know where your variables are?

The sub my_excer does actually return @retval which contains the values from $itm. Your debugging print statements do not demonstrate this. Nor do you show the subs() method which you pass @retval to - this is probably where your problem lies as you seem to have enough print statements in your code to demonstrate that you are getting what you expect just before the return @retval. BTW you do not need to use prototypes for your subs the way you do. With $item you are passing a reference to a reference which is unnecessary and you then have to dereference it which make your code less clear.

else { my $id = $$item->id; print "printing the item id\n"; print "$id\n"; $SQL = qq[SELECT u.puid, up.prod_id FROM users u, user_product +s up WHERE ((u.puid = up.puid) AND (u.parent_puid = $id) AND (up.from_date < SYSDATE) AND (up.to_date IS NULL OR up.to_date > SYSDATE))]; } my @RETVAL = my_execer($SQL); print "Hey I got something back!" if $#RETVAL > 0; print 'I got this back\n", Dumper(\@RETVAL); ${$item}->subs(@RETVAL); # <-- here is problem I think print Dumper $$item; foreach my $subitem ($$item->subs) { find_subs(\$subitem); } return $item;

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:

  • 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.
