Hi Suhaib,

your code is wrong. You're not loading any module. 2 reasons:

1 - there's no module Bio:: Perl
2 - even if there was, you shouldn't have a space between Perl and the
double colon

I see many errors on your code such as a space between $ and the
variable name. I'd recommend you learn a bit of Perl first. Learning
Perl by O'reilly is very good if you have no programming background
(but it doesn't cover objects oriented programming which BioPerl
uses). If you already know how to program, just not in Perl, I
recommend Modern Perl which is free (as in freedom)

There's also a small introduction to Perl and BIoPerl on the wiki
