in reply to perl command line arguments

You could try setting an environment variable and then accessing it in your perl command via the %ENV hash (works in tcsh shell):

setenv arg="ARG"; perl -ne '<your command here>'
Alternatively, you could set the $arg variable at the start of your perl command once:
perl -ne '$arg="ARG";<rest of your command here>'
