Good one...

I fear that it totally depends on the company and what they do. You will
certainly get the basic loops and a open file question. Then likely a print
to a file handle some juggling about with arrays and hashs, but other then
that who knows. I found that the questions often depend on what the team you
are interviewing for is working with most. A team that parses a lot of log
files will have more questions related to grep regular expressions (forgot
to mention those there will/should be a question about that) where as a team
that plays with databases over lunch will usually ask more questions related
to SQL, DBI and things like that.

In general the best thing to do is make sure you know the basics well enough
to be able to code some simple scripts unless they are looking for a perl
guru you usually are fine with just the basics. Besides they have your CV
they know you are not a perl expert yet... The most important thing is not
to try and talk your way out of it. If you don't know the answer to a
question try to explain conceptually how to deal with it rather then in
code. In the end the main thing they will be looking for is your skill as a
coder and your understanding of programming/scripting languages not your
years of experience with perl.

I have yet to walk into an interview where I have to write some real code
(beyond a one liner or something similarly short) so personally I would not
worry about that to much, though it might be different in different parts of
the world but in Europe I have not seen a request like that yet.

Good luck with the interview,

Rob

It's not so easy to reply. It depends of the company and also a lot of
points. Maybe you can look this link wrote by chromatic

I think it's a good begin

Did the recruiter (?) give you any information about the job posting?
What sort of tasks will you be expected to do? What's your programming
background? You didn't provide us any information with which to advise
you. In either case, I would suggest looking at chromatic's Modern Perl
as a refresher on how many people write Perl these days.
