Hi all

Problem:

I want to send 2 arguments to a subroutine in the form of arrays and want to use their result which is also in the form of an array.
  
Explanation:

suppose i have 2 arrays

@a=`/bin/cat /some/file` ; # A file that has a list of users
@b=`/bin/cat /another/file` ; # Another file with a list of users

sub try
   {
     *&%&^&^&^$$@%$&(&)(*
     the code will do some sort of comparison of the elements of both arrays and return the results in the form of an array
      ........
    here i want to return my result in the form of an array
    say "@answer"
   }

how I can use the resulted array "@answer" in my main program ?

Solution:

????
