    I have searched everywhere for information on how to convert MetaStock
    formatted files into ASCII files. MetaStock files are used by various
    financial charting apps - and I have a lot of these files that I need
    to convert into csv files. Any help would be appreciated (I am under a
    lot of time pressure here and would be willing to pay for this help -
    if needed). Thanks in advance.

    Then you might consider posting this at jobs.perl.org

    It would be helpful if you can properly describe (or post a sample link
    to) your data files.

    Hmmm. Out of curiosity, I typed "metastock format" into Google and
    this appeared near the top of the list (and the list seemed to include
    other promising links as well)

    I'm not sure what sort of search tecnnique you're using...

    Thank you for the info on where to post looking for a programmer. I
    have uploaded a zip file to:
    http://firstvolgainvestments.com/Documents/MetaStock_Format.zip
    It contains all of the info I have. I have been teaching myself Perl
    for 2 months now and would like to write a script to process these
    files. However I still do not quite understand what i have found in my
    searches.

    BTW I have most of the commercial programs (DataSharks, mimansoor
    command line program, and some others).

    I will post a job posting in a month if I am unable to understand what
    I am reading. Thanks for any help.
