Remember that a lot of CVs that you get from agents will have been mangled beyond all recognition by the agent. That a CV from an agent says PERL doesn't say a thing about the candidate.

That's why, as a candidate, I usually take my own copies of my CV to interviews, to replace the broken one the agent has given them.

    Good point.

    As I said, the spelling of PERL on the resume wouldn't in and of itself cause me to pass over a candidate, but your point about recruiters might be an important point to keep in mind.

    print substr("Just another Perl hacker", 0, -2);
