I've found it only too common that their perl knowledge is "user level" at best - ask them to explain the difference between my and local and they may just muddle through, start talking about stashes, closures, etc and they're totally lost.
A little worrisome this, I couldn't tell you the difference between 
local and my, I could probably muddle through our. I do know closures 
but what's a stash? I would like to think that I am at least competent 
after all these years but it sounds like I would probably fail.

What is your favourite CivIV leader :)
