Thank you all for for your responses and advice.
I suspect my lecturer is a member of this site (he recommended it to the class). I just want to clear up a few misconceptions with tilly:
1. I am not asking anyone to do my work for me I just want someone to EVALUATE my code,help me spot bugs,better my understanding and maybe grade me on my code that's all.
2. I have a sincere interest in learning perl and mastering it for the long term.
3. This is not my first introduction to programming
4. I WILL PASS THIS COURSE ON MY OWN MERIT..................
