in thread Fido and Amelia

I don't think O'Reilly will change the Camel's color anymore. Though you know why, I'll write it for the others who might not: this blue is used for everything Perl they do (every book about Perl or close enough, like J. Friedl "Mastering Regular Expressions").

Fido is "Programming Perl", 2nd ed., while Amelia is "Programming Perl", 3rd ed.

There seem to be a problem with the work camel as well: Fido's colophon says it's a "camel (one hump dromedary)", while Amelia's colophon says exactly the opposite with "dromedary (one hump camel)". More inside jokes?

    Yeah, I don't really get why the coloring is the way it is. I mean, all SysAdmin stuff is Blue, it used to be that all programming was fuchia, but Perl is now light blue while Python is still fuchia, along with C, etc. I like the color coded idea, but don't really understand where they draw the line.
