in thread PERL as shibboleth and the Perl community

But that's the thing: in the cases you've given, the arrangement of letters is different, which would lead to different words. The difference between "perl", "Perl", and "PERL" is capitalization; their respective arrangements of letters is the same.

OK then, we can use another example of something you wouldn't want on a resume:

therapist

vs.

TheRapist



Wait! This isn't a Parachute, this is a Backpack!

    LOL! When I used to do career counseling, my two favorites were "Resent Work Experience" and "Louts 1-2-3".

    What you're missing is that with that capitalization, you're either making a wiki entry, or you think that you're some kind of cool Java programmer. Not that there's anything wrong with that...;)
