I've translated a single Perl script (written by someone else) to Python. If
it helps you at all, you can see it here:

I would recommend that you read through the Python Tutorial as a start, and
then look at the Library Reference. You should be able to work through the
tutorial in short order, and then browse the Library Reference on an as-needed
basis. The tutorial may seem simple, but it will get you jump started and
won't take long..
