Read perldoc -f alarm if you haven't already.

A quick way to do what you want:

$MyRequest = HTTP::Request->new('GET',"$URL"); alarm 30; $MyResponse = $UserAgent->request($MyRequest); my $timeleft = alarm 0;
Caveats: Too many to list in this space, signal handling has the ability to wildly complicate your life, etc. If your program is very simple I think the above may do what you need. If not, Super Search for examples and ask more questions. :)
