Shell Script to Pel Script Conversion utility

Shell Script to Pel Script Conversion utility

Shell Script to Pel Script Conversion utility

(OP)
I would like to convert one of my Korn Shell scripts to a Perl script, is there either a Perl or UNIX utility that can perform this?

RE: Shell Script to Pel Script Conversion utility

I don't know of a conversion utility, but you can call your Korn script from Perl by using the "system()" command, backticks, the "do" command, etc.

RE: Shell Script to Pel Script Conversion utility

(OP)
I've found that the free (well almost free, I aggree to place banner adds on my pages) web server on the internet which I use, does not support shell script usage, so I was looking for something similar to a2p but something that will generate a comparable perl script. Do you know of a free service(preferably with a shell account) on the web that does allow the use of both perl and shell scripts? I do not prefer to convert all of my shell scripts over to the perl language. I currently use Hypermart.

Is $10/mo for a real host going to break the bank?

Nah.. :)  What do you have?

RE: Shell Script to Pel Script Conversion utility

Well, my company colocates servers with Qwest for about $200/mo.  But we, among others, sell very inexpensive accounts on our servers.  You should go to your favorite search engine and look up a hosting comparison site so that you can compare features and rates and maybe get some testimonials.  Free is not better.
