I would also estimate it to take about a day or so. £500 would  
therefore be a reasonable estimate at the typical market rate of  
£300-400/day for a Perl contractor.

However, you're after a fixed-price job, which costs more because the  
contractor is taking on the extra risk of the job going pear-shaped  
for reasons outside their control. And IMO, £500 isn't enough to cover  
that risk.
