3)Embed the command line arguments into the top of your, perhaps as you are sending it across the wire to perl. This would require some pre-processing of the script and some assumptions of where you can embed the code - if I were to do it this way, I would probably have a token of some sort in the script that I would replace with my parameters --> The cmd line argumetns are also dynamic in nature..but i dont understand this entire statment correctely. can you give an example ?

In your script you could have something like:

# Earlier stuff in the script... # Fill in the arguments if running remotely @ARGV ||= qw(%%REPLACEDTOKEN%%); # ... and back it out if @ARGV should really be empty @ARGV = () if $ARGV[0] eq "\%\%REPLACEDTOKEN\%\%"; # Rest of your script
At this point, you would use something locally to replace '%%REPLACEDTOKEN%%' with your parameters, and pipe that to a perl call on the remote machine.

sed -e .... < | ssh user@remote perl

I still have concerns that this is the most robust solution to your problem.

Do your scripts use any temporary files? If so, I would seriously reconsider your answer to number 2. If you can write temp files, you can also write a temporary perl script.
