in thread Modern Perl and the Future of Perl

I prefer that Larry keep his attention on Perl 6, but it would be so nice to see an updated Camel Book. Maybe other people could take up the burden of writing and he could have a more supervisory role. I don't know, but folks do need to be aware that Perl's still alive and kicking hard. I know that people whose experience is limited to "I wrote a bunch of Perl scripts" 5-10 years ago are consistently amazed at what can be thrown together with a few CPAN modules.
