++ to kirby, ask him\her for their Perl Monks username PERFECT~! =:-)
Definately check for typos on the spelling of Perl, or ask them what Perl stands for, or what is a shebang line?
or really simple things, like who is Larry Wall or Damian Conway.

P.s. If he says their username is "Paco" ask where the heck he's been for the past few years =:-)

    Er... it's a good idea, but not necessarily "perfect"

    There's a lot of great Perl hackers out there who've never been to the monastery before. And that's not a good reason not to hire/interview them.

    Nobody knows what "Perl" really stand for (so it is a trick question) and I never use a "shebang" line in my scripts as on Windows its use is very limited, so that would not necessarily weed out the good from the bad.

    Better to ask whether they use c-style for-loops or know what the Schwartzian Transform is.
