in reply to Autovivification Oddity

I agree with your concern that there's not a central location where this is explained.

In the interests of starting a partial list:

  • Perl Glossary: Autovivification
  • Perl Ref: Using References
  • Perl Ref Tut (buried in an example)
  • Exists function (example)
  • Open and related functions that use file handles
  • That's about it!

    So it certainly warrants its own section, covering the pitfalls, and referencing other Perl documentation elements that relate to it.
