My intent with the site is to gather information on what exactly modern Perl looks like, so that I can write the promised Modern Perl book. I'm working on the outline and have lots of great ideas, and of course I'll solicit feedback from everyone willing to contribute.
Today I realized the need for a simple definition of "Modern Perl" which a novice programmer could use reliably until he or she is enough of an expert to define a personal subset of the language and its ecosystem. I know that this'll start all sorts of arguments, but in 21 years no one has done this, so why not try now?
Modern::Perl is a CPAN distribution which enables all of the features of Modern Perl in any program which uses it. Please see Toward a Modern::Perl for more explanation. I'm sure I'll add more modules, but right now it collapses three lines of code in my simplest programs into one, which is definitely progress in the right direction.
