in thread Perl confusion

Scot, Thanks for your message. I did not want a solution to the problem but a breakdown of what was expected in a beginners terms. I know to obtain user input I have to use STDIN but how to write that obtain that with the whitespace is where my confusion lies and I would appreciate some explanation. It is not my homework just practicing Perl for beginners. Please what does the sequence length mean? Thanks

      the sequence length is just the number of nucleotides in a sequence. such as 4, 100, 123 Is it supposed to look like this? #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; chomp(my $input = <>); print "$input\n"; if yes how do you put a limit on it for the user input?
