in reply to Do ORA's Perl logos contribute to common misspelling?

For me, the most compelling reason to mis-capitalize Perl is the persistent rumor that it is an acronym.
So, yes, I think the ORA logo contributes to that misunderstanding.

    the persistent rumor that it is an acronym.

    I think this is the biggest reason. Most introductions to Perl begin by reciting the famous acronyms that start with "Practical ..." and "Pathetically ..."

    Perhaps the next Camel should dedicate an entire chapter on the spelling of Perl to clear up matters.
