February 2008: These tests are all badly in need of update. Some questions are incorrect because of changing technology and others just make no sense in today's IT world. I do intend to update these, but it's a big project..

Perl questions are based on Perl 5 unless noted otherwise.
These questions are intended to test your knowledge, but they are also intended to help you learn more about Perl by examples and just by making you aware of things you might not have known about. There are 33 questions here. Each question is rated as E Easy M Moderate or T Tough.
The qualification of Easy, Moderate or Tough, is completely arbitrary and highly subject to my own prejudices. Roughly, the Easy questions are those I would expect even a beginner to know, while the Moderate are what I expect an average Perl coder should know. Anthing else will be in the Tough category.
There's no scoring; you can tell yourself if you are doing well or not.
