Welcome to PerlMonks and the Monastery. We hope our association will be productive for you, so please pardon the abrupt phrasing (if you see it that way) of the question that follows: isn't what you're asking "Please do me a freebie so I can continue [to pursue a degree|to earn $salary] without [hiring a programmer|learning to do it myself]? (The pipes in the bracketed phrases mean "or;" the bracketing is gross abuse of a regular expression construct..)
The Monastery comprises learners, learner-teachers, and teachers. It's mission -- and methods -- can be discerned in The Perl Monks Guide to the Monastery. Among other tidbits, this,
" PerlMonks is many things to many people, including:
There's nothing there that says this is code-a-matic.
Then there's an important suggestion in para 3, "Checking other Resources First," in On asking for help. I think that subhead is obvious enough, when taken in the context of "asking for help." But there's more: Perl Monks Site FAQ and if you feel our solution to your problem is worth having, it's probably worthwhile for you to learn about the community's norms and recommendations.
Please don't let this disuade you from frequenting the Monastery if my initial question includes off-the-mark speculation. There are many willing teachers here, if you show us that you've made some effort to solve your own problem.
Update: And for the sharp-eyed with error-reporting set up high, this is an offer of at least one "++" for the Monk who finds the extra </i> about which the error-checking complains. :)
