Anton Zamov - More than 4 years professional experience with Perl

Perl is one of my favorite programming languages, I started working with Perl since the summer of 1999. Since then I have written many useful programs (for example a program which converts MySQL dumps to MS SQL Server queries and many others), you can download for free the source code of some of them from this site.

Perl is an acronym for "Practical Extraction and Report Language".
It is an interpreted language that is optimized for string manipulation, I/O, and system tasks. It has builtins for almost everything that's in section 2 of the UNIX manuals, which makes it very popular with system administrators. It incorporates syntax elements from the Bourne shell, csh, awk, sed, grep, and C.
Perl has gained recent attention in the explosion of the World Wide Web as a quick and effective way to mock up applications that provide much of the web's interactivity. It has a lot of syntax that can make scripts contain more characters from the top row of the keyboard than any other, but that is not necessary to get anything done. In fact, there are few of the traditional limitations that interpreted languages impose.

Free versions of Perl programs written by Anton Zamov is program which allows you to convert a directory containing MySQL dumps (for example CREATE TABLE statements of a database) into one file containg the MS SQL SERVER query which creates a database with the same structure. This program is the first one I've written for this purpose in the summer of 2002, since then I' have rewritten it in C# to create a windows application which converts MySQL databases to MS SQL Server- if you want to download this program for free please send me a request from the "Consulting" page from this web site. is a Perl program which uses the power of the Perl regular expressions to convert SVG XML-based vector graphics to VML. The SVG to VML converter is a very useful program if you want to switch between SVG to VML and to publish your vector graphics in internet without any plug-in using VML (VML - Vector Markup Language, currently supported by IE5+) .
