in reply to Is Programming Perl still relevant as a reference book?

My question is now, is The Camel Book still relevant as a reference book? The third edition is soon seven years old, and Perl is a moving target. Which version of the language does it refer to? What has changed? How will I know which parts have?
Yes. 5.6. See perl58delta, perl581delta, perl582delta, ... perl588delta.
