You are trying to assign to $1 and $2 but these are special variables that are only set by successful regular expression match captures and are read-only otherwise (see Extracting matches). Use normal scalar variables with names that are something meaningful, like $offset and $reclen perhaps.

I hope this is helpful.

Cheers,
