    Hi,
    I got a package from cpan, and it contains a
    "bootstrap 'nameof module'" command. When I use this module perl interpreter
    fails to recognize this module unless I remove the bootstrap command.

    Does anyone know what this command does and why the interpreter doesn't
    recognize the package with this command in it.

    Define "got". Did you _install_ it?

    This loads the non-Perl part of the module.

    Define "fails to recognise".
