    If it is a server, then yes, you will have to make-do with the other solutions (Javascript). I'm currently working on getting nodejs to do the same as WWW::Mechanize::Firefox does, except without the need for a display, but that is still very much a work in progress, so I recommend you look at the other methods.

    Alternatively, you could write a small Javascript wrapper for your sso.gen script and call it via node sso.gen-wrapper.js $ARG1 $ARG2 via backticks.

      Oh, when I mean a server, I mean I work in a server, that is , it has no X windows system, so I cannot install firefox.
      My perl script is a client.

        One long-shot alternative is to run Firefox within a virtual X display, like xvfb provides.

        Another, even more long-shot alternative would be to try to compile Firefox without its display components.

        I never tried either, as I have a dedicated machine that runs just Firefox for automation.
