Actually, nevermind about the blank line in the result set. I see that yours has it also. Must come from the "+1" in the print.

Erm, no. The header line, and the following blank line in the output, are printed by this line:

print scalar <DATA>;

It has one newline because I didn't chomp it. And the second, because I have -l on the hashbang line:

#! perl -slw

Which has the affect of automatically adding "\n" to the end of every print line.

The +1 in this line:

print join "\t", $label, map $_+1, sort{ $order[ $a ] <=> $order[ $b ] } 0 .. $#order;

converts the numbers 0 .. 3 used to index the array while sorting. into the numbers 1 .. 4 used for your desired output.
