in reply to PERL as shibboleth and the Perl community

Just out of curiosity.
Does anybody know why O'Reilly (or is it O'REILLY) printed 'PERL' on the covers of Perl in a Nutshell and Perl CD Bookshelf, even on the latest editions?

    Because they use all caps for nutshells. Hence PERL IN A NUTSHELL and LINUX IN A NUTSHELL. Perl is not usually all caps, but then neither are Linux or nutshell for that matter.

    That's a graphic design decision. You should notice that they also spelled "IN A NUTSHELL" in all caps. ;-)
