Hi Fellows!
I wonder if you know of any small quests which would be suitable for a beginner, for practicing?
If you know of a site or a small problem which would be fine for Perl ...
e.g.: get used to variables, use loops, scalars ...

It is more fun to have a (not too much challenging) "problem" to solve than some hypothetical case.

Thanks for your help!

As a longterm project i want to start a match schedule calculation but thats too much for my current knowledge

Some Suggestions:
Do the exercises in the Lama Book
Do some simple exercises on the new learned stuff
Help at CPAN projects (testing)
Try to answer the questions in SOPW
