Hey Monks,

Recently, I came across this site :

The concept is: you have to solve a particular problem by wrting a solution in C, C++ or Pascal. Next thing you do is: send your source code to an "online judge". The bot computer will compile the code for you and you get a notification if the answer is good / wrong / compilation error / ...

My question is: is there something like this for Perl? I searched the web for "Perl challenges", "Perl contests" and more but I couldn't find anything usefull. Do you know anything more, something interesting? You can learn a lot from these "puzzles" , plus it's fun!

I really enjoy the challenges on the site, but my "language of choice" is Perl, so I want to solve things in Perl.

Maybe (in the future) we could try to make something like this in Perl? If any of the Monks is interested in this, just drop a note.

Any comments / replies about the idea appreciated.

Cheers, Azerton
