in thread Interview Prepration

Actually, that jobseeker interpretation matches mine; namely, that the OP was looking for the answers in expectation of "being interviewed" as opposed to "conducting an interview of a prospective employee."

However, there's something else peculiar here: the bottom of the perl interview page you cite (and link) says: "Check out Perl Monks for discussion of the questions and related Perl interview issues. Check RegExpLib for regular expression samples." RegExpLib appears to be site which provides advertising for regex-related software... but the reference and link to Perl Monks raise (for me) the further question of whether someone is using the Monastery's good name as an implied endorsement of a product?

I should note, tho the pm link is to the Gates, so I suppose the reference and link could have existed prior to the OP's initiating this thread.

    Ouch... they put The Monastery and that ugly Regexlib in the same category? Regexlib is cargo-culted after cargo-culted regex written by amateur hacks, with very little attention paid to standards and usability. Eeek.
