  • I do not think the Perl community is atrophying. I was just curious from the other remark I read how many people do think it is and why.

    As far as using book sales as an indication, I agree that is bad. It may be *an* indicator but you have to look at a lot more things as well. The poster child would be Ruby. They were doing next to nothing until Rails and then a lot of people baught Rails books to see what the fuss was about. I don't think they really *converted* a lot of people because if you look at Ruby as a whole, it has issues (more so on Windows).
