backslashes sometimes unnecessary

in reply to Single Quotes - how to avoid any escape processing?

This isn't perl specific, but I think it's helpful to know that many Windows APIs (including several Microsoft ones) do accept forward slashes as well.

Try

perl -e "print join ' ', glob 'C:/Windows/sys*'"
and enjoy :-)

Although this does not solve your original issue, perhaps it helps alleviate the problem at hand?

    IIRC all the old DOS APIs accepted "/" as path delimiters, it was just command.com itself that did not.

    package Cow { use Moo; has name => (is => 'lazy', default => sub { 'Mooington' }) } say Cow->new->name

[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)
