in reply to Perl Kata

Warning: Humor ahead.

Monk Test: (Do 5 of 7)
1. Use 'map' to implement an encryption scheme.
2. Figure out what module(s) the most recent homework assignment node should actually use. Extra credit for links to CPAN.
3. Define a Schwartzian transform and benchmark it's speed and memory usage vs. any other method.
4. Use strict, -w, and -T. Explain why.
5. Compare Perl favorably to Java. Give concrete examples.
6. Catch any PM saint in a Perl error.
7. Get published by O'Reilly. (May be dropped, doesn't seem challenging enough around here. {grin})

In all seriousness though, the levels are here for recognition. If you are active in PM, you will get a feel for which Monks give advice that fits the problems and your own stylistic needs. Once you're there, levels mean even less.

Enjoy the XP, enjoy the levels, but don't get hung up on them. The fact that you have the XP shows that you are an assest to the PM community.

Have fun.
