Looks like you verion of Perl is not processing the inline POD documentation directives (=head1 ... =cut etc) correctly. This would cause problems for moast CPAN modules line7 is part of the documentation in the SYNOPSIS section, but is trying to be run as part of the code. 5 =head1 SYNOPSIS 6 7 use Lingua::EN::NameParse qw(clean case_surname); Work around would be to strip out the POD documentation. Also maybe check that line endings are consistent for your operating system
