in reply to Code won't proceed after input.

Your while loop is an infinite loop because you never increment the $counter variable inside the loop.

UPDATE:

I would appreciate ALL the help you have.
You can use qw to cut down on some typing:
my @AAMatrix = qw( A C D E F G H I K L M N P Q R S T V W Y );

You can use map and Range Operators to cut down on some more typing:

my @AAOcc = map { 0 } 1 .. 20;

      Or better yet IMHO:

      >perl -wMstrict -le "my @AAMatrix = qw( A C D E F G H I K L M N P Q R S T V W Y ); ;; my @AAOcc = (0) x @AAMatrix; print qq{@AAOcc}; " 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
