Additional exercises for "Learning Perl" book?

gozu has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I'm learning perl and while I like the book "Learning Perl", I find that the exercises are spaced too far apart from each other (~30 pages!).

If I didn't have such a terrible memory, this would be no problems at all since the exercises are absolutely excellent

I am hoping that I am not the first person to want more frequent exercises (maybe every 10 pages or so) to help me remember the different sections.

Does anyone know if there are some available on the web? This is probably a long shot but I figured I'd ask!

If not, maybe this can be my next project! :)
