#!/usr/local/bin/perl

print "Enter a number ";
$user_input=<STDIN>;
chomp($user_input); ## Remove the \n from the users input

$user_input=~ s/\s+//g; ## Remove any white spaces from the user's input.

if ($user_input!~ /^[+-]?\d+$/){
  print "Please enter ONLY integers\n";
  exit;
}

$summ=$user_input * ($user_input+1);
print $summ,"\n";

i think this is what you might want...

#!/usr/local/bin/perl

print "Enter a number ";
$user_input=<STDIN>;
chomp($user_input); ## Remove the \n from the users input
$user_input=~ s/\s+//g; ## Remove any white spaces from the user's input.
if ($user_input!~ /^[+-]?\d+$/){
  print "Please enter ONLY integers\n";
  exit;
}

foreach (1..$user_input){
  $ans+=$_;
}
print $ans,"\n";
