I have an existing php script (1 file) which does the following:
1. patches 6 files with extra codes, i.e. it opens up an
existing file, look for certain patterns and inserts extra
bits of codes into it. I.e. "Patching" the existing file. If you are familiar with the unix tool "diff" and such, you will know what I mean. These 6 files are phpBB forum files.
2. reads a text file containing mysql statements, and use it to create the tables.
I want this script to be converted into a Perl/cgi script. In addition to the 2 functions above, the perl script should also:
a. create a backup of a few existing files, and
b. create a cron task (the cron command will be given)
* you need to knowledgeable in both php and perl.
I will send you the php script of course. And, if you require, I will also send you the original 6 phpbb files and the 6 "patched" phpbb files for comparision.
The perl script should provide the same patched files as the current php script.
Note: this is "Work for hire".
