Challenge #1

Write a script that computes the first five perfect numbers. A perfect number is an integer that is the sum of its positive proper divisors (all divisors except itself). Please check Wiki for more information. This challenge was proposed by Laurent Rosenfeld.

Challenge #2

Write a function, ‘center’, whose argument is a list of strings, which will be lines of text. The function should insert spaces at the beginning of the lines of text so that if they were printed, the text would be centered, and return the modified lines.

For example,

center("This", "is", "a test of the", "center function");

should return the list:

"     This", "      is", " a test of the", "center function"

because if these lines were printed, they would look like:

   a test of the
  center function

Challenge #3

Create a simple perl client for @mailgun API. For more infomation visit official website. This challenge was proposed by Gabor Szabo. The API challenge is optional and would be part of weekly challenge every week.

Last date to submit the solution 6 pm (UK Time) Sunday 19th May 2019.
