in thread System() in list mode?

What if your path had an apostrophe (single-quote) in it, in addition to a space, and that path was stored in a variable (i.e. not hard-coded)?

    You don't have to do anything at all.

    system('tar', 'cvzf', 'my_tarball.tgz', $path);

    Again, the multi-arg form of system does not invoke the shell, so you can pass all the spaces, quotes and dollars signs you want and no shell will touch them.

[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)
