Not a direct answer to your question, but you may consider taking a look at Learning Perl (aka "the Llama"), which is currently in its 5th edition. Widely recognised as one of the best books for Perl beginners (and it does have answers to all exercises).

If you find that a bit easy going, then the next step might be Programming Perl (aka "the Camel"). Considered by many as the Perl "bible", it's also a very entertaining read.

Hope this helps,
Darren :)
