in thread bug or curly bracket hell?

You have a bogus 'print "' at the start of your code. The closing quote for that string is 'open('conf', "' (many lines later). All of the apparent use statements and my declarations, in the intervening code, are just part of the string; they are not Perl statements that will be executed.
