I am just wrapping up a data conversion project using Perl 5 and Groovy.  I
used Groovy to do some address validation using a Java based package called

Besides the pretty complex conversions I wrote dozens of reports to identify
inconsistent data so it could be cleaned up before the conversion.

The client was pretty happy with how fast I could create new reports
and make changes to the conversion algorithm.  I did not miss an opportunity
to mention that I was using Perl.

About a year ago I was working on a project to generate Java code using Perl
5.  The Perl reads XML to generate Axis2 based webservices.  The Perl code
generates .java, .wsdl, and .html.  The XML is documentation of mainframe
transactions.  The idea was to turn mainframe transactions into webservices.

Anyway, I am looking for another gig;  I am especially interested in the
Financial SW.  I have been studying CUDA in hopes of using it for financial
SW.  For those of you who may not be familiar: CUDA is a C library used to
turn an nVidia graphics coprocessor into a math coprocessor.
