Try replacing
open(INFO, <"/export/home/cad/data/products/$name/source/$">)
open(INFO, "/export/home/cad/data/products/$name/source/$")
This should work if you want to just read from INFO.
You are still not actually doing anything with the contents of the file. Try using:
@lines = <INFO>; close (INFO);
this will read all of the file into the lines array and then close the file (which is always good practice)
Also, in your open or die code you may want to use $! as that will contain the relevent error message.
Incidently try to wrap any code you post in the code tags, see Site How To, because it make it much easier to read.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
