in reply to I mainly write Perl at...

Let us not forget the teachings of http://www.wall.org/~larry/: "Perl isn't an orthogonal language; it's a diagonal language. By which we mean that Perl doesn't force you to always go at right angles." (Camel, sect 1.5 -- I found this via google (where it shouldn't be, so no link) not by inspection, so I'm not sure which ed.)

    Maybe I just missed that discussion, but why exactly is caching on Google bad? If it retains copyright info whats the problem?

      My point wasn't that google caches it. My point was that the link is to a copyrighted work of Larry Wall et al, via O'Rielly (who quite likely actualy owns the copyright, but I'm too tired and drunk to check), which they have expressedly not given permission to distribte. My complaint isn't at Google, who is just doing their level best to provide relevant search results and related services (which they do very well), but at the people who put a copy of Programing Perl on a publicly-accessable web-site, in voilation of it's copyright. (I suspect the people in question bought a site license for the CD bookshelf or O'Rielly Safari, but I'm quite certianly not at their site.)

        Ok I see what you are saying now. I completely agree with you about the posting of the entire copyrighted work, I just thought that the quote was just something you found on a site, rather than inside a book on a site.
