How to convert MetaStock formatted files into ASCII files

I have searched everywhere for information on how to convert MetaStock
formatted files into ASCII files. MetaStock files are used by various
financial charting apps - and I have a lot of these files that I need
to convert into csv files. Any help would be appreciated (I am under a
lot of time pressure here and would be willing to pay for this help -
if needed). Thanks in advance.

Then you might consider posting this at jobs.perl.org

It would be helpful if you can properly describe (or post a sample link
to) your data files.

Hmmm. Out of curiosity, I typed "metastock format" into Google and
this appeared near the top of the list (and the list seemed to include
other promising links as well)

I'm not sure what sort of search tecnnique you're using...

If you have Downloader from Equis (it used to be available at no charge but
I haven't checked lately), conversion routines are built-in.

Thank you for the info on where to post looking for a programmer. I
have uploaded a zip file to:
http://www.yqcomputer.com/
It contains all of the info I have. I have been teaching myself Perl
for 2 months now and would like to write a script to process these
files. However I still do not quite understand what i have found in my
searches.

BTW I have most of the commercial programs (DataSharks, mimansoor
command line program, and some others).

I will post a job posting in a month if I am unable to understand what
I am reading. Thanks for any help.
