    Hi,

    Is there a tool or script available to convert perl-script to
    awk-script/or any other script.

    Perl comes with 'a2p', a perl script that converts an awk program
    into a perl program.

    There are a lot of things in the perl language that awk doesn't have,
    so attempting perl-to-awk will run into problems.
