in reply to What's the story behind the camel?

The camel is on the cover of the O'Reilly book programming Perl, the cannonical Perl tome. Most of their books have animals on the cover. I don't know why the camel instead of a flea or some other beast though.

    Perl, the cannonical Perl tome.

    It is cannonical because it can be used as an heavy projectile. It does not have the penetrative power of depleted uranium though.

    Books of the "unleashed collection" are pretty good arms as their name suggests but otherwise lack the good kind of density.

    Yes, I can spell bananna but I'm never sure when to stop.

    Sorry, I could not resist.
