Problems with String::Parity;

dwatson06 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I am having problems using the String::Parity module. When I include it in my Perl script, I am getting the following error...

Can't find string terminator "EDQ" anywhere before EOF at line 49. Compilation failed in require at line 5. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at line 5.

Line 5 is-- use String::Parity;
Is anyone familiar with this error. I have tried searching this error on Google with no luck. Am I missing the obvious out of frustration? :o(
Thank you

    Either the file String/ is corrupted, and you should download it again, or it has the wrong type of line endings for your system (Win32/Unix), and you should download it again.

    If you're not using the CPAN module for downloading, make sure the file transfer is set up to "do the right thing" with line endings.

    It's got a typo in the source apparently. Let me take a look at it.. Update: Hmm no, the copy I just fetched from CPAN works fine. What platform are you on and how did you install it?

    Makeshifts last the longest.

      I am using ActiveState. I have the same version on another server which gives the same error also. It's the eval<<EDQ here...
      my $even_codes = '';
      while ($even_bits =~ /\0/g) {
      $even_codes .= sprintf '\%o', (pos $even_bits) - 1;

      I am using another version of it locally now, still getting the same error.
        The indented part below that should end with
        EDQ die $@ if $@;
        Does it?
