I am working with a huge codebase of Perl.
The code have zero documentation and zero unit-tests.
It seems like a huge hack.

The underlying database schema is horrid.
So I want to rewrite the whole of it in Python.

How do I start ?
The idea is to rewrite module by module.
But how to make sure code doesn't break ?
How can I import perl and python codes in each other ?
