in reply to run a perl script automatically every 24 hours

On a Linux system, you want man 5 crontab
On a Windows sytem, you want the Task Scheduler (which is available via the Control Panel, I believe).

Cheers,
Darren

    thanks for the input.Is there anyway to run the script itself automatically every 24 hours i mean not using task scheduler (i am on windows)
      Why wouldn't you use the Task Scheduler?

      You could always do something like:

      while (1) { # your script goes here. sleep 86400; }
      But that would be a bit silly.
      Use the Task Scheduler - that's what it is for.

      Or, you could look at Cron for Windows.
      Or maybe CronW, which appears to be a Perl implementation of the same.

      Dude - spend 1 minute Googling. It doesn't bite ;)

        thanks for the reply.I took your advice to the task scheduler again thanks for your help McDarren
