> Subject: [TIP] Going From Untested Perl to Tested Python
> Hi,
> I am starting to convert a rather large code base from untested Perl
> to tested Python.  One idea I had was to write tests in Python, that
> tests the Perl code.  Once I have the core functionality worked out,
> the next step is to rewrite it in Python, and finish off unit testing.
>  Has anyone else done something like this, and if so do you have
> recommendations?
> For the Python code that is untested I am using Pythoscope, which is
> quite nice so far.
