  • This would leave us some space for later updates: Romantic Perl, Modern Perl, PostModern Perl.
    • A second thought - Renaissance would also be a good name.
      • I like the names, but worry that they're a little too cute and non-obvious for the intended audience. I'd like to expand all of the knowledge about how to take advantage of Perl features added in the 21st century to a wider pool than the upper 15% of PerlMonks and most posters on use.perl.org.

        That said, there may be ways to pull these ideas into a unifying concept -- though likely in tagline or design rather than title.

        • I too run into the class confusion when terms such as "Modern" come up. To me, the Moderns were the ones who came to creative blossom between the World Wars. What's the meaning of the Modern practices for a Post-Modern [wall.org] language?

          I'd suggest "Contemporary". But if people listened to me, they wouldn't call it "Classical Music", either.

            Don't get me started. Sometimes I listen to Handel or Vivaldi just so I can give the "It's in the definition of Baroque" lecture to people who ask "Do you like classical music?"
