  • I just looked at my book shelf, here is what I saw that capitalized it:

    - PERL Black Book
    - DeBUGGING PERL
    - THE PERL CD BOOKSHELF
    - PERL 5 UNLEACHED
    - PERL Annotated Archives
    - PERL 5 HOW-TO
    - PERL IN A NUTSHELL

    Granted, most capitalized the entire title, but most of the older books capitalized just PERL.

    A random look inside the books, however, show all refering to the language as Perl.

      Capitalization of the title on the cover or home page is a design decision, not an editorial decision. Even if it says "PERL Black Book", that's not the correct rendering of the title, any more than you'd say "GONE with the WIND" just because the cover artist happened to like the way the words fit together with that capitalization.

      Looking inside the books, as you did, is the way to go, so your report actually indicates that none of them used "PERL".
