I'd say, the camel is as obsoleted in three years, as a book about important CPAN modules does in three years. How many fundamental modules arrived on CPAN the last three years?

Not to troll but what kind of logical argument is that? It's tantamount to saying the camel is obsolete because the price of crude oil has gone up. Backing it up by saying "11 million barrels of oil are imported into the U.S. per day!" doesn't really help the argument either.

You also seem fairly competent at Perl programming, if the camel is so out of date (and has such poor indicies, if that's really an important point) why not write one yourself?
