in reply to Exercises Node

Although it's not a bad idea, I'm not sure it would work better. Personally I feel motivated most by problems that suggest themselves in the course of my work (which need not be programming, but problem solving in general).

Also, many questions are asked in the Monastery, so trying to find an answer would rate as a good exercise IMHO. Since most get answered, you can even check your answer.

Just my 2 cents, -gjb-

    I agree. I like the idea, but am also pretty sure that the advanced monks will come up with a solution fast, and by doing so, discourage the less advanced monks.

    Some questions in the Seekers of Perl Wisdom section can be qualified as excersices. I tend to learn quite a lot from the replies.

    Then there is the beauty of Open Source Software! Just download a certain script and take it apart. Or just join a project over at Sourceforge. I've seen some great projects there and a lot of them are looking for help.

    And! There is this Golf: New spellings for old names excercise :)
