You also have an unpleasant surprise waiting in this line here

$perbus =~ tr/A-Za-z/a-z/ ;

which is not going to do what you think it will. See perlop for more guidance.

    GOOD Point! or was that good pzzzz! The lc lower case function is a shorter faster way to do it than tr/A-Za-z/a-za-z/ which is redundant as you only require tr/A-Z/a-z/ to do the same as lc cheers
