Why not just a cron job that uses wget or something to download the file and then simply executes it? Your files are shell scripts anyway and you want to execute them on the local machine, so why use Perl at all for this purpose? As for error handling you can redirect STDERROR to some sort of log file or catch errors and write something to a file or whatever you need to do. Isn't that all you need?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —

    [Corion]: Meh. My lack of embedded Pg is showing. I can get the data for an image gallery with one SQL statement, but not with SQLite as it doesn't do window functions :-(
    [Corion]: Hmmm. Maybe I can still fake the one spot where I want/need a window function in SQLite... I think I'm never really interested in the real "next" image (not hidden/deleted)
