  • Sounds interesting. But if you see it as a streamlined Camel book, then I would suggest complimenting it with a Modern Perl Cookbook (i.e. a task-focused guide).

    I'd be willing to find a way to contribute to either.

    • That's a lovely follow-on idea, though it will need a different name to avoid a trademark scuffle.

      • "Modern Perl" is definitely a better title.

        Other possible title alternatives...

        * "The Perl Way" (ala"The Ruby Way" ;-)
        * "use Perl"
        * "using Perl"
        * "Enlightened Perl"

        I'm kinda liking the last one myself as it nicely associates itself with EPO efforts (www.enlightenedperl.org)

      • Well, if O'Reilly is the publisher, they might go for it -- I could see making a case for how it leverages the brand and recognition of the original Perl Cookbook and that would improve sales.

        Another idea is to just have "Modern Perl" be in two parts. Part I is the language and Part II is a task-focused cookbook. It would make it a pretty hefty tome, though.
