Well, this site (i.e. PerlMonks) is full of Perl puzzles. There's new troubleshooting puzzles in Seekers of Perl Wisdom every day. For really advanced puzzles, try determining how any code posted to Obfuscation works.

Nearly every Perl book I've ever read has had multiple instances of: "XXX is left as an exercise to the reader". While I'm happy to be corrected, I suspect O'Reilly has the largest collection of Perl books. I wasn't intending to post any particular title but, when checking the URL for O'Reilly, I did notice Games, Diversions & Perl Culture which is possibly the type of thing you're looking for. A general Internet search may be better but be prepared for a large result set unless you're specific: googling just 'perl book' indicated over 6 million results.

    [Discipulus]: finally a relaxing workday! good morning mnks!
    [Lady_Aleena]: I hope you have a wonderful day Discipulus. 8)
    [Corion]: A good morning to you too ;)
    [choroba]: Good morning, Monks!
    [Corion]: And a good daypart to you as well, Lady_Aleena !
    [robby_dobby]: Hey monkeys, do you ever get the realization that you're all waking up to chaos? I suppose not :P
    [Lady_Aleena]: Good morning Corion, I hope you have a wonderful day as well. 8)
    [Corion]: Yesterday I encountered an interesting data structure problem. I have a remote program that emits events, and my client listens for these events with one-shot callbacks, that is, I register the callback and if the event gets generated that callback ...
    [Lady_Aleena]: robby_dobby, every day. Chaos is my life with few controls.
    [Corion]: ... gets called once. The data structure for that is just a hash of arrays, mapping the event type to a queue of registered one-shots, and the first one-shot from the queue gets removed and called.
