Oh wow, I don't think it's the "style enforcement" at all as much as that the main books are a little dated. Programming Perl 3rd ed was y2k! Am I missing a later version?

The people that are really into style enforcement already moved to python.

    I respectfully disagree. Many of us who use Perl care very much about good style and maintainable code, and some more guidance in the books would be helpful.
      Style and style enforcement are two different things. Perl does not enforce style in any meaningful way.
        And I'm saying I would love to see more style enforcement in perl, so your supposition that no one wants it is not correct.
