in reply to Perl challenges?

Actually we can discuss the datastructure and algorithm used for these codes from perl perspective here. They can be very useful to solve our probelms.

Also good: Acm International Collegiate Programming Contest with around 1000 intelligent computing problems.

    Yes indeed, I like the site. It uses the same "judge" system as the site I mentioned in my first post. Not always easy to solve though...
      What would be the point if they were easy to solve? I remember going to one of these things and tying for 30th. It was like a 270-way tie for last place. That being said, I had some immature, unpolished sophmores and freshman on my team, and my goal was not to win, but to avoid killing them. Had I been able to recruit better slaves, we would have faired far better :) Still fun though, and lots of free snacks. College students will do anything for free snacks. Another thing is a lot of schools (full of folks with no life) practice for these things (sometimes even offering course credit! blasphemy!) --- we didn't -- so we only walked away with the free snacks.
