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.
        Ah, I didn't ascertain that you were pro-enforcement; now your comment makes more sense. I also didn't mean to say that no one wants style enforcement; just that it isn't there.
