This is also explained in perlfaq4 and perlref. 

Golf historians do not know who invented this technique, but the first
recorded use dates from December 14, 1995. The author of that post to
comp.lang.perl.misc was Randal Schwartz, but his code was immediately

already an established idiom.

Does anybody know of an archive of cplm which can be searched for '@{['?
