Don't know if it is too late to comment on this node, but I am noticing a trend at Frys that Perl books seem to going away. I used to visit the Mayan Fry's (off Brokaw,in San Jose). Over several months their section on Perl seemed to be getting smaller and smaller. I took this to be just laziness or brief incompetence in ordering.
Now, still more months later, I go to the Cowboy Fry's in Palo Alto (the point is, different Fry's, same trend) and I saw no Perl books there at all. When I asked one of the salespeople specifically where their Perl books are, she said "They are either not there, or are in the bargain section".
Have you noticed anything similar?
