How familiar are you with git? The Toronto Perl Mongers already have an account on github - https://github.com/toronto-perl-mongers and if you have (or create yourself) a free github account we can add you to the group and maybe set up a project for the first task.
If that was set up then maybe you could supply some sample input and output files to specify what needs doing, and we can progress from there.
To make the best use of a site like github you need to be proficient with git. The site is very convenient.
