When there were books only on Perl4 and Perl5, the distinction was easy to do: you had the Fuchsia Camel and the Blue Camel.

Now that there's a new blue kid in town, dedicated to Perl5.6, you cannot say "the Blue Camel" anymore...

Personaly, I don't find Camel 2 and Camel 3 (even with Roman numbers) quite satisfying. At, we discovered what we believe to be a secret message from Larry in the last edition of the Camel. We are quite sure that he knew there would be a problem, and gave us a hint at a solution.

Now, we have distinctive names for the Camel herd:

  • The Fuchsia Camel
  • Fido
  • Amelia

You don't have to read more than the first 20 pages of the blue Camels to know why we do so.

What do you think about this naming convention, Monks?
