It would be really helpful if you could explain in more detail precisely what is confusing about this. Particularly with reference to the tutorials mentioned by others below.

Generally, the answer to "how to write a Perl script" is "learn Perl".

If you want to use NCBI's services directly, a good place to start is by studying the sample Perl scripts and sample E-Utils applications provided with the documentation in the Entrez programming guide. That Entrez programming book will be a good reference point for finding access to the information you need.

I'm curious why you don't want to use BioPerl because there are some very thorough tutorials for using NCBI's E-Utils. I know you mentioned a pure-Perl approach, but I recommend you also look at the relevant BioPerl documentation/tutorials so you can minimize your efforts.
