I don't know, what you call "the normal way"....although you apparently 
have the genome sequences locally already, I recommend to use the 
ensembl API to fetch genomic sequences (ie "from-to's").

see: http://www.ensembl.org/info/docs/api/core/core_tutorial.html

it is not BioPerl but a distant relative of it
