Actually, one of the things I'd said at the beginning was that the PHP code worked, and the issue I face is translating it into Perl.
Well, what you said was "The only working example I have for the SOAP sever I need to use is written in PHP". In my experience these services often provide examples written in various languages so my intention was to clarify. I don't know PHP so can't help you with translation.

You said too that "SOAP itself looks to be simple enough" but if you have a look at SOAP::Simple it says:
Let's face it. SOAP is painful. It's a dumb idea, the only reason you should ever consider using SOAP is if someone holds a gun to your head or pay you a lot of money for it.
Maybe that module should be called SOAP::Simple?

If you are familiar with XML a better approach may be to use XML::Compile::SOAP and it has lots of examples too. Without being able to see your Perl code and the details of how it fails the only other suggestion I have is to look through the many other nodes here on Perlmonks that mention SOAP and WSDL.

choroba should make his presentation scaffolding public
[Corion]: choroba: spod5 converts pod to S5 HTML, so it's also still basic. I find the lack of animations (in the sense of "highlight this", "highlight that" in code) somewhat tedious as I do it with rendered PNGs
[Corion]: I haven't found a good way to include/use the source SVGs I use for creating the PNGs directly as animations
[ambrus]: Presentations come in many different shapes, and so slides do as well.
[Corion]: Doing that in Powerpoint or Ooxml would be nice(r) but I'm much quicker doing the outline of a presentation and the code as Pod
[Corion]: Hurrr - on a machine that is behaving weirdly, I have two processes CROND running. I guess that is the source of unattended jobs sometimes not finding their files anymore...
[ambrus]: Most of the time if I make slides, they're just a formatted document with a medium level of formality (between a well written article and an informal draft), with usually the page breaks chosen carefully and possibly some content repeated between pages.
[Corion]: ambrus: My slides are mostly a list of things I want to talk about. But sometimes I want to point out interesting parts, or build up a larger image from small components. This is where animations/ highlights would come in well
[choroba]: what I like about slides in HTML + CSS is I can use templates to produce them, which means all code in slides is tested, and I can version them in git
[ambrus]: Btw, a request to everyone who organizes international conferences where presenters will show slides.
