ok, i am gonna take a shot at this: but take this to heart, i learned perl on my own, not from any course, so i may interprite these Q's differently than suppose to, but here it goes...
Re: Any Perl Experts out there??

1, Perl is a weak (or loose) typed language. by this i think you are asking the question of "how stingy is the language?" with Perl, you do NOT have to declare variables before using them, and if you call to an undeclared variable, Perl just figures that it is 0, and does not complain... I hope i understood it correctly.
2, standardized... hrmm.. well what i am reading from this is: do you have a certain pattern that you have to follow from perl.. the answer to that is NO, Perl is flexible in that there are a wide array of sormats that you can use with perl to get the same job done. but, one thing that Perl does not do (besides for using Perl/TK which is nice but is not practical for internet use), you cannot run realtime web/cgi programs "ie: java". again, not sure if that was what you were asking..
3, Ok, you got me on this one, i do not understand what you are asking.. so i wont embarrise myself any further by trying to answer it...
please be kind if i am way off base, i am just trying to help answer your questions, and i do NOT guarentee in any form the consequences of such answers if you use any such response in your report and they are not right, HOWEVER, if they are right then... remember to give me special thanks in your report.. (front page middle will do :)
I Hope this helps...
perl programmers don't die.. they just start writing a new script.
