I do appreciate any advice, though seems as if it could have been given
without the put-down.  The real fact of the matter was that I didn't realize
that search returns different values based on the variable you are returning
to.  And  yeah I'm a bit new to perl and coming from a C background, the
"wantarray" idea on return is still a bit foreign to me.

Search docs really do help here:
  Return Value: $resultset (scalar context), @row_objs (list context)

Also, maybe its just me but when I dump a ResultSet object, its very hard to
tell how to get at things. There is a ton of extra stuff in there.  Perhaps
people have some ideas on easier ways to look at this object.  I tried this
cookbook idea but for some reason it didn't work for me:
