Ok Mitra, you’ll want to send the code that caused the error, otherwise we won’t be able to help very much. Note I have cc’d the bioperl list; please reply all, so that the many friendly and helpful experts on this list can also assist.

Hi Mitra, 
This is a Windows shell error, not a bioperl error. It suggests that a filename is being referenced that does not comply with the Windows spec. For example, you can generate this error from the command line by doing

C: >echo blurg > fds?fdsf.txt

since ‘?’ is not a valid filename char.

Dear Dr Jensen:

May I have a question about bioperl? 
i recently installed bioperl toolkit via PPM. After writing the programs(that im sure the codes are correct), I confronted with this error: The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect. I tried a lot to find what does this error mean but unfortunately could not find anything.
I would be so grateful if you kindly direct me. I know you are an expert and hope you dont mind answer to a very beginner bioperl programmer.

thanks again,
