in reply to New Perl Certification

Well, it's a 60 multiple question exam that focuses in 46 issues...

Judging from what it says, it probably takes one question to figure out if you "Understand and use references", and perhaps two when it comes to know whether you're able to "Distinguish between valid / invalid native function names"

Anyway, you only have to answer correctly to 33 questions in order to get the certification...

I wouldn't trust the results of such an exam :-)

(In fact, I could even assume the person wouldn't have the necessary skills for a job if he/she had undertaken such an exam just to prove me something...)

[haukex]: Corion: Yes exactly, in the author tests I don't worry about portability as much, I also don't list the author tests' dependencies in Makefile.PL
[haukex]: I figure someone who wants to contribute will know how to install the missing modules ;-) Not the nicest way to go but I don't think many people are using my modules yet
[ambrus]: Corion: some of these stupid syntax highlighters assume that too. just look at the table in http://perldoc. functions/pack. html for example.
[haukex]: ..."yet" ;-) I haven't had to deal with Dist::Zilla yet but I've heard about how it's a big setup
