    I have checked that module. But actually my job is not only file parsing after every interval, the operation could change later.

    I need a timer basically, so as to carry out any operation (for example file parsing, running some function) after an interval automatically. .

      I have checked that module.

      You could have told that in your first post:). No Problem.

      read perl alarm.alarm and also check this module Sys::AlarmCall
