    JediMasterT,
    See perlop. The // operator essentially is a special or operator where it is testing the left hand side for definedness. I am pretty sure this became available in perl 5.10 four years ago but you can check perlhist and perldelta if you want to be sure.

    Cheers - L~R

    If the left part is not defined, the right is returned, otherwise the left one is. See perlop.
