Perl Q - fault in my script? Help please!

I don't have any experience writing perl scripts yet and I'm having a problem running a script called mediawiki2wp. I'm hoping someone with experience can help.

I'm running strawberry perl on a 64bit windows 7 computer (I have no idea if that info is needed but just in case...)

When I run it, it stops with the following notice:

at c:/strawberryperl/site/lib/XML/Smart.pm line 240

at c:\convert\mediawiki2wp.pl line 68

I'm assuming that means these are the lines where it hits an error and stops

Line 240 in Smart.pm is

 $$this->{tree} = &XML::Smart::Tree::parse($file,$parser,@_) ;

and line 68 in mdiawiki2wp.pl is

my $XML = XML::Smart->new($opt{f},'XML::Smart::Parser');

Is this enough information to tell me what needs to be changed in mediawiki2wp.pl to make it run?
