Hurry! The free Modern Perl ebook giveaway only lasts until the Singularity!
Given the imminence of Perl 5.14, would you like to see an updated version of Modern Perl for the new stable release? The electronic version have a few bug and typo fixes not in the printed version, and this seems like as good a time as any to do a second printing.
(And, yes, the title gently mocks the breathless advertising of certain "traditional" publishers who seem to need to brag that they too once in a while give books away out of magnanimity. That portion of the publishing industry will continue to die as authors realize exactly how bad their royalty arrangements are. I personally earn more money from a purchase of Modern Perl made through an Amazon.com affiliate link than I would have earned in royalties from any of my other publishers. You'd think finding a way to compensate authors more equitably would be a priority to anyone who loves the printed word.)
