extracting map data for a predicted gene

I have a text database of a large set of C. elegans predicted genes
(denoted by cosmid#.ORF#).  I would like to add fields to my database
that include the chromosome number, physical map position, and
approximate genetic map position (and possibly other data in the future)
for each gene.  Obviously, AceDB has all this information, but how can I
extract it for a large number of genes, for instance through a Perl
script.  I'm a novice at AceDB and even more of a novice at Perl, but
I'd be anxious to put a script together if someone could help get me
started.  Thank you.
