in reply to Pre-Qualifying Perl Questions

To avoid "circulating list of answers" syndrome, I like to suggest asking them to design and write a vaguely-described small module to see what they do. Do they start writing code right away, or do they ask more qustions to pin things down better? Do they say something like "I'd use Module::Starter to get my skeleton files, then ..."

Do they write tests, or at least mention that tests would be a good idea? Do they say "we should check CPAN first"?
