Perl Golf
Learning Perl in Competition


A competition to find the shortest (fewest keystrokes) Perl code to solve a given problem.

 Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Monthly Tournaments

Update: Most golfing activity has moved to Terje Kristensen's Minigolf site.

The Perl Golf community puts on monthly tournaments. ActiveState and O'Reilly award prizes to the winners of the beginner and veteran competitions.
