The monks here, for the most part, do not mind a novice with a lot of questions, provided that the questions change in substance and nature over time, indicating that the novice is doing some work and actually striving for understanding.

Experienced monks answering last years exam questions for your course is not going to help with this years exam (unless the examiner is very lazy), however we are willing to point to the knowledge being examined by the question so providing you with a basis for answering this years questions on that knowledge. (I may never have previously added 123467 and 764532 together and the fact that I can state with confidence what the answer is doesn't mean I have learnt off all possible additions, understanding is the key)

In order to answer the questions posted you need to study and practice, there are no short-cuts. Study, write code, debug your code, and repeat. It genuinely does you no service to provide answers to relatively trivial questions, in fact writing this response is more demanding than supplying examples and copying the appropriate statement from the docs.

So finally there it is the path to all knowledge, study and learn from your mistakes.

print "Good ",qw(night morning afternoon evening)[(localtime)[2]/6]," fellow monks."
