Perl 5 developer Fundamentals test

The following is an excerpt of a job posted to perl jobs:

Require an experienced Perl Programmer with networking background (TCP/IP). Want someone who loves to code and has a solid software development background. Majority of experience is programming (Perl and C required) on Linux platform. Must take Perl 5 developer Fundamentals test and score in the 90th Percentile or better. A great plus would be to have experience with development of a networking product, though not required. Interaction with common Linux services (LDAP, IP cables, security).

Question: What the heck is the Perl 5 developer Fundamentals test? I've never heard of it!

      That's interesting... They have Perl 5 tests and Perl 3 tests?

      No Perl 4? I wasn't doing Perl in the Perl 3 or 4 days. Is Perl 3 so similar to Perl 4 so as to make a separate test unnecessary?

      Anybody ever take any of these tests? If so, how are they?

    This maybe?



    Cor! Like yer ring! ... HALO dammit! ... 'Ave it yer way! Hal-lo, Mister la-de-da. ... Like yer ring!
      I hope not: "Divides a string into a series of individusl words", "white space" as two words, ... someone should proof read the test. It gives a bad impression of the intelligence of the one doing the testing.

      Also, the first two questions:

      1: The chop function 
       Removes the last character from a string 
       Divides a string into a series of individusl words 
       Removes any white space on then end of a string 
      
      2: The chop function ... 
       Removes the last character from the string in the parameter. 
       Removes the last character from the string in the parameter if, and only if, it is a new line character. 
       Removes leading and trailing white space characters from the string in the parameter. 
       Removes trailing white space, including new line characters, from the string in the parameter
      
      ask the same question with different multiple-choice answers; and there is only one item in common between the two lists!
