O'Reilly & Associates publishers has announced that it will host the well known Perl Language Home Page, originally developed by Tom Christiansen. The Perl site has long provided one stop shopping for web developers who depend on the language to enhance sites. It contains software, resource, and training information, as well as a connection to the Comprehensive Perl Archive Network (CPAN). O'Reilly expects to upgrade and "significantly accelerate" the site. Christiansen maintains that the change is "tremendous for the Perl community."
