Skim the Camel book (Programming Perl) perhaps, if you have it?  Read perldoc 
perltoc and look at any pages that are fuzzy?  Look over perl code you've got 
hanging around and make sure you understand it?

Chances are they'll be fairly lenient as far as minor misremembrances as long 
as you have the core algorithm and structure correct.

(Nitpick: don't all-cap Perl.)
