Thanks for all the input guys. I ended up running the mysql command on the remote system via the perl system() command as you guys suggested. Getting it all done with native perl code wasn't necessary.

The only trick to getting the system() call to mysql to work as a scheduled task was to use the .my.cnf file in the calling users home directory to specify their sql user, pass and target database without being prompted. Works great!
