  • Is this really an introduction to a language (Perl 5) that will surely have a declining adoption rate by the time the book is published? Or is it instead intended for current Perl 5 users who wish to learn not with outdated patterns, syntax elements, and libraries, but with a fresh look at the best Perl 5 has to offer? The latter is certainly more likely, and more likely to inform the Perl 6 user-to-be. A book with this angle is better titled "Postmodern Perl", as the approach is in reaction to classic, or "modern" usage of Perl.
