Yes, you can pass another subroutine an array. You're title mentioned something about passing an array by reference. If you pass by reference, include a backslash before the @ symbol. Try this:
sub FOO { my @array; #code here #Here is the pass to BAR &BAR(\@array); } sub BAR { my(@array) = @_; #This will receive the array from FOO #code here }
If you send an array (or any other variable type) by reference, remember to dereference it. You can do this by placing the variable type symbol in front of the $ sign i.e. @$array, $$scalar, %$hash. Once a variable is dereferenced, you can use it like you normally would

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.
