in reply to operation inside reference

$doc->{links} is assumed to be either an array reference or undefined. If it is undefined, the  // defined-or operator (new with Perl version 5.10, see Logical Defined-Or in perlop) will evaluate the  [] anonymous array constructor to create a reference to an empty array. The  @{ } expression will de-reference to a (possibly empty) list either the valid  $doc->{links} reference or the empty reference. (Any expression may be evaluated within a  @{ } dereference.) If the  // operator had not been available, the  || operator would probably have served as well since all genuine references are true and the undefined value is false.

[Corion]: Meh. I think I have now the parts down that I want from a simple Javascript frontend for single-page- applications with a aPerl backend. But it seems that all Javascript templating modules either don't support two-way binding (which would be nice) or ...
[Corion]: ... don't support server-side precompilation (which means the client has to compile all templates to Javascript themselves), or are giant frameworks that expect to do everything (which is not what I want)
[Corion]: I feel that there is a talk somewhere in there, either about the structure and parts, or how I used several parts to get a complete whole.
[Corion]: Maybe I can still find something that is compatible with handlebars.js (which has JS precompilation) but allows for two-way data binding (which is great for the UI)
