in reply to Dereferencing %hash that does not exist.

In recent Perl (which 5.10.1 is in this context), you can also use the defined-or operator:
my $revmod = %{ $_[0] // {} };

Update: It should work with plain ||, too, in the older versions. Just make sure you never call it with 0 as the argument.
