in reply to Perl interview questions?

Reading all those 'interview' topics, it seems to me that most interviewers are trying to trick candidates into saying something stupid.

I think i'd try to just talk to the applicant about programming-related stuff and then in a matter of minutes you get a good grasp of his/her abilities/knowledge. A good (potential) programmer is one who is intelligent, knows a little bit of math, and has ever programmed in any language

My advice is: don't focus on things you can teach a monkey (like always turn on strict and warnings and tainting) but focus on intelligence (do they like the idea of code reusability, some OO stuff maybe)
