2.12: Which magazines have Perl content?

    *The Perl Review* ( http://www.theperlreview.com ) focuses on Perl
    almost completely (although it sometimes sneaks in an article about
    another language). There's also *$foo Magazin*, a german magazine
    dedicated to Perl, at ( http://www.foo-magazin.de ).

    The *Perl-Zeitung* is a German-speaking magazine for Perl beginners (see
    http://perl-zeitung.at.tf ).

    Magazines that frequently carry quality articles on Perl include *The
    Perl Review* ( http://www.theperlreview.com ), *Unix Review* (
    http://www.unixreview.com/ ), *Linux Magazine* (
    http://www.linuxmagazine.com/ ), and Usenix's newsletter/magazine to its
    members, *login:* ( http://www.usenix.org/ ).

    The Perl columns of Randal L. Schwartz are available on the web at
    http://www.stonehenge.com/merlyn/WebTechniques/ ,
    http://www.stonehenge.com/merlyn/UnixReview/ , and
    http://www.stonehenge.com/merlyn/LinuxMag/ .

    The first (and for a long time, only) periodical devoted to All Things
    Perl, *The Perl Journal* contains tutorials, demonstrations, case
    studies, announcements, contests, and much more. *TPJ* has columns on
    web development, databases, Win32 Perl, graphical programming, regular
    expressions, and networking, and sponsors the Obfuscated Perl Contest
    and the Perl Poetry Contests. Beginning in November 2002, *TPJ* moved to
    a reader-supported monthly e-zine format in which subscribers can
    download issues as PDF documents. In 2006, *TPJ* merged with Dr. Dobbs
    Journal (online edition). To read old *TPJ* articles, see
    http://www.ddj.com/ , brian d foy's index of online TPJ content (
    http://www.perlmonks.org/index.pl?node_id=711609 ).

Doesn't the current faq maintainer also run tpr?
Why doesn't he update this with the fact that tpr hasn't published
an issue in over a year and had been barely surviving on life support
for years before then?
Why not just pull the plug and officially announce tpr is dead?

The links are fine I guess...I didn't see if they actually lead to the
you claim they do.
When mentioning tpj why not mention that O'Reilly has collected and
the best articles into three volumes?
http://oreilly.com/catalog/9780596003104/ is one of tehse three, for

Well, it was never barely surviving, but people wanted more web stuff
and less print stuff. Still, that means it's not a magazine so no one
should call it that. As for why: I don't comb the FAQ for updates. I
fix problems when people point them out. :)

Because that's the job of perlbooks.pod :)

As we're picking holes in this one today :-)    

That last link to perlmonks.org works, but some of the links from that
page are 404 (I started at the bottom of the main list, those at the top
seem OK, but I didn't have the patience to check them all).
