suno has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi PerlMonks!,...

I am working on a tool which converts assembler to some language....

i have a CODE file that has my code..for example LA VAR1,R1
, MACRO file that has a set of macros taken from the code.for example.. @OPEN arg=VAR1 , LIBRARY folder that has the list of macro files...

Here, i have to capture 'VAR1' from the CODE file and search for 'VAR1' from the MACRO file and get the corresponding in the above example, my macro is '@OPEN'... then making note of the macro,i need to go to the LIBRARY and search the macro that we have noted earlier (@OPEN) and retreive the data corresponding to the variable VAR1(data will be VAR1's length,datatype,value)...

Can this be achieved using perl???

    Yes, it can, if you know Perl and if you know how. Any more specific questions? What have you tried, what did not work?

    I'm too lazy to be proud of being impatient.
