    The code is executing well but the output which we are getting is in the html format , cannot we get the output in the gui , so that if at all we run the script the gmail account of ours will be automatically logged in,,??

      If you want to automate the login into gmail and then continue the session in a browser, you will either have to automate a browser, like Win32::IEAutomation or WWW::Mechanize::Firefox provides or you'll have to store the appropriate session variables in the cookies of the browser. There are various HTTP::Cookies modules that allow reading and writing the cookies of a browser.

        Even though i have used the Win32::IEAutomation before the perl script, the output which is generated in the html format , its not getting login in the gmail authentication page.
