in reply to Perl on Windows XP needs to grab internet txt file.

The above comments are sound advice. However, if your task is as simple as you describe it, the simplest solution may be to just set up a cron job to call wget.

If you use Windows, I believe (but am not 100% sure) that Start -> Control Panel -> Scheduled Tasks is the cron equivalent and you can find wget for Windows here.
