The project is as follows:
1. Replace the flat file storage method with storage in mysql.
2. Revise the existing code to (a) connect to a mysql database, (b) write new forum posts to a mysql table, and (c) write profiles to a mysql table.
3. Revise the existing code to read all forum menus, forum posts, and profiles from the mysql table.
4. Scrape approximately existing 800,000 flat files and save the data to a mysql table. All files are in exactly the same format as the one attached.
This is a fairly complex project and I do not expect you to estimate it based on the information posted here. Please examine the attached files and PM me with your qualifications and any questions. I will send the complete perl code to a subset of interested programmers, as well as a link to see the live forum. Based on that information I would like a bid.
I will award the project to a programmer with strong communication skills, experience in perl, and a clear understanding of what needs to be done.
