Digging through Google referers, I found a forum link of someone asking for a Perl to JSP conversion tool. *Sigh* How can you not recognize that it's a completely different programming paradigm (OO), or how about just a completely different syntax for function calls, etc?
If anyone had actually bothered to respond and tell them that they actually need to code, not just take 10 minutes and feed the large and complex source code to a tool (step 3: Profit!), I bet the next question would be, "How do I write JSP?".
The worst part is that they probably already have the contract to do this job with their unwitting customer.
