in reply to Provide material

      This is Dinesh, Iam a fresher for perl programing, could anyone please provide the basic interview question

I am of the opinion that you'd better hope that your potential employer doesn't read Perl Monks and make the connection between this post and your upcoming interview. Or am I jumping to a conclusion? Are you the interviewer or interviewee?

If you are the hiring manager then you should concentrate on the soft sciences types of questions and not get into the technical part of Perl programming.

Just my $0.02 worth....

    I think that newbabymonks is the interviewer not the candidate. My guess is that he is a non technical manager at a company that does outsourced programming projects, and that they have just landed a contract to maintain some legacy perl on the strength of exaggerated promises and a low ball fee.

    Except they have no perl programmers on the payroll, so they need to recruit some fast hence their urgent need for some technical questions to filter out applicants that have lied about their qualifications. I doubt it will end well.

          I doubt it will end well.

      My read as well. It has been my experience, especially in the last six months or so, that there are a ton of contract houses out there throwing bodies at projects with no hope of filling their client's needs effectively. The bodies they throw at the projects are willing to work for peanuts so the clients bite and it screws things up for the rest of us. Grr.
