You can execute commands on remote machines from a Perl script using the Net::SSH::Perl module.
This module allows you to execute a command remotely and receive the STDOUT, STDERR, and exit status of that remote command.
One big advantage of Net::SSH::Perl over other methods is that you can automate the login process, that way you can write fully automated perl scripts, no console interaction is required in order to authenticate in the remote machine.
my $host = "hostname";
my $user = "user";
my $password = "password";
#-- set up a new connection
my $ssh = Net::SSH::Perl->new($host);
#-- execute the command
my($stdout, $stderr, $exit) = $ssh->cmd("ls -l /home/$user");
All is well
