  • I'd like to see "Perl Enterprise Patterns" or something equally buzzword compliant lying on my desk.

    It would probably be an interesting read, but mostly I would just use it to subliminally fade the script/unreadable/toy/fringe aura Perl has in too many people's minds.
    • I that case why don't you just print out a cover and put it around some boring Java book.
      • I don't have any Java books :)

        It doesn't have to be that way. Here are a couple of paragraphs from my notes that I mentioned above:

          While it's certainly possible to write Perl that looks like
          Java, you're probably using Perl because it affords a different
          approach and a different philosophy to solving problems. Don't
          consign that philosophy to the scrap heap just because the
          problem is bigger.
