Sadly, there will be no automatic dereferencing done by Perl. But it is very easy to do: to get the original array, just add the @ sigil to the front of the scalar holding the reference.

A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James
