in reply to Should I upgrade my "Learning Perl" Book?

If you really want to waste some cash, then instead of 4th Edition Llama go buy 2nd Edition Aoudad. Not only is there a book out for something that doesn't quite exist yet, but it's in 2nd edition already! Does anybody else find that to be absurd, or is it just me?

    If any topic needs frequent and multiple editions, it's Perl 6. They could have a new edition every six months and have mostly new material. I think all the of Perl 6 books pre-date Pugs. :)

      So we get lock-in to buy new versions perpetually until it's finished/right/complete... Sounds like my least-favorite OS. :-)
