Ah. That makes sense. The content didn't change a whole lot, but it was more of an internal/bug fix than about adding a bunch of new features.

Great analogy. I like it. Regardless, I still love this book. Maybe more than Eloquent Ruby...

    The contents changed more than you might think. I revised something in at least 90% of the paragraphs of the book. Most of those changes were to improve organization and clarity.

      Yeah, but the only new material appears to be two about two pages worth of 5.14 info

      IO::File autoloading

      package Pinball::Wizard v1969.3.7 { my $new_lexical_scope = 1; ... }

      non-destructive modifier /r for tr///r s///r

      Perl 5.14 supports Unicode 6.0.

      automatic dereferencing  push $arrayref, qw( list of values );

      use feature ':514';

      If you've read the old version and perl5140delta you're up to date.

        True, but the people who do that aren't the target audience.
