in thread Perl quiz for beginners

Many many thanks for your awesome feedback "cdarke"
I know I need to learn many things in Perl. I am just experienced beginner in perl :D
That's why I joined Perl monks to hone my skills and learn & share with you.
Yes Perl is a name but everybody asks what is it's full form and I need to say it, so put this question in quiz.

Yes I just kept example of it. It should be path to Perl interpreter. ex: c:/opt/perl/bin/perl

I asked "Perl version only" all other options except $] would fetch more information that just version number/string Yes Autovivification is more than that but I thought it would be enough to give idea in one line

Yes very true but here motto was to ask which keywords are meant file handles and answer would be STDIN, STDOUT, STDERR

I checked and semicolon is there.
and yes this was meant for Perl beginners only. But it's good to get expert's comments so that We can work much harder way to have expert level participants in future.

Thanks for joing us at Aliencoders. Wish to hear a lot from you there :)

    Yes very true but here motto was to ask which keywords are meant file handles and answer would be STDIN, STDOUT, STDERR

    Then please write STDIN, STDOUT, STDERR. I thought you did mean a, b and c.

    And a, b, c are also valid file handles:

    $ perl -wE 'use strict; open a, "<", "TODO"; say <a>'

    It is also slightly annoying to have several correct answers within a poll; the question which of several correct answers is more correct doesn't make sense, if you start thinking about it.

    Thanks for the quiz anyway.

    "Yes Perl is a name but everybody asks what is it's full form and I need to say it, so put this question in quiz."

    Nonsense, BS, indefensible rationalization/justification because the answer is wrong.

    Visting unknown site such as yours, I don't allow js or cookies (among other personal quirks). So I can't get past Q1, though from this nodes' grandparent, I can deduce the questions. But, frankly, the comments below from moritz, davido and jwkrahn persaude me that I haven't missed anything valuable.

    And further re davido's comment about teachers and quizes, the teacher who's trying to fake competence with knowledge a scant chapter ahead of the student on a topic in which neither is expert is almost guaranteed to provide misinformation.

    Update : Oh yes, it's considered bad form here to post your data offsite: if it's not posted here, it may not be there, sometime in the future, and thus the value of the entire thread is apt to be lost.
