    Modern Perl is a good concept, but antique Perl style also needs explanation. Only very few programmers never have to maintain the old stuff.

    A while ago I started a wiki page for this, http://www.perlfoundation.org/perl5/index.cgi?ancient_perl [perlfoundation.org] but I never got around to finishing that.

    Also, while old stays old, the definition of "modern" is constantly changing. It'd be a bold move, especially in print, but I think this book needs a timestamp ("Modern Perl 2009") in the title, and constant (biennial?) review.
