in reply to best way to store login information for a perl script?

One thing you could do is when you run your script have it interactively prompt for a password then have the script fork off into a daemon process where it does its stuff. If you need to change what the script/daemon does send it a "kill -HUP pid" and have it read some text file or whatever. Or write your script so you can send it "commands" via a socket.
