    Do you really mean me by "you"?
      Chorob, Thank you for your response. Since I am new to this PerlMonks site took me a while to figure out where replies to my query would go. I don't understand your comment as there are a number of if statements and a matching else for each...if you could explain a bit more I would appreciate it.
        there are a number of if statements and a matching else for each
        I have not verified whether each statement has its if, but there is definitely an else without an if. It is located at the very place of the error:
        41 else { 42 $hold = $hold.$hold; 43 } 44 else {
        Do you see it?  else {...} else
