First of all, the module is called AutoLoader, not autoloader. Perl is
case sensitive (though Windows is not, this might somehow be the cause
of your problem).

Secondly, the language is called Perl, not PERL. It's considered a bit
of a faux pas to fully capitalize it.

Thirdly, this mailing list is not intended for help questions like
this, but for the development of perl itself. I would recommend you to
go to perlmonks, stackoverflow or comp.lang.perl.misc for further

Fourthly, I would personally recommend against using AutoLoader in
your own modules unless you're absolutely sure you need it and
understand the side-effects of it. You're probably not writing a new and if you are you probably shouldn't.
