You do not have to be "on" the server if you want to interact with a website. If you can reach the website through a browser from your machine, you can do it with Perl too.

There are a lot of modules that allow interaction with websites. The LWP-series of modules is well known for this.


A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James
