I am wondering if there are any tips or tricks to converting perl into python. It would be nice if there was a script like python's 2to3. Or perhaps some compatibility libraries. It doesn't have to be complete, anything to help speed up the process would be helpful.
There are so many ways of doing the same thing in Perl that writing any sort of crosscompiler would be... painful at best. Reconstruct (don't just translate) the program manually.
