Perl Exercises: For Beginners

perl.j has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Are there any websites or books that have excersises for perl? I have used Perl Cookbook but it wasn't what I was looking for. I'm looking for something that gives you an idea of a problem and you have to solve it. If there is nothing of the sort that exists is there a way we could get this page on PerlMonks (That last sentence was for the Monks). Thanks in advance!

    A couple of old (but still fun) links:
    • Perl Quiz of the Week (two every week, regular and expert)
    • Ruby Quiz (the solutions and discussions are Ruby, but that doesn't stop you attempting Perl solutions)

      Thanks so much for the sites and links. I also found a link. It is...
