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!

    [ambrus]: erix: that one actually sucks. these days people should get rid of the old notion that TeX is the only thing you can use for decent mathematics writing, because MS Office and LibreOffice have reached the
    [ambrus]: level where people can more easily write as good mathematical papers in them as the people who write bad LaTeX papers usually write.
    [ambrus]: Yes, for like the first twenty of its years, TeX was basically the only system that allowed you to write decent maths papers, and C++ and PHP were programming languages that sucked, etc. But times change and people have to accept that.

    [Discipulus]: php does not suck anymore?
    [ambrus]: Discipulus: I'm not sure, but it certainly doesn't suck as much as it's used to. it's like C++, it sucks because people still recursively learn from twenty year old PHP examples,
