Default How to convert python script into perl


I got one project on which PI is asking for the script in perl whereas I completed the script in python. Is there any way to convert python script into perl?

Any help or suggestion is much appreciated.

Well that sure cleared up how to translate from one programming language from another...

Your PI probably wants it in Perl because they can read/write Perl, but not Python and want to double check your work. While there might be a language converter out there that would generate code that runs, it would likely be unreadable and defeat the purpose.

I wouldn't invest much effort in translation unless it's a trivial script. Perl is nearly dead as a bioinformatics language...
