in reply to Cron jobs in Perl

There's nothing special about cron jobs running in Perl. Cron doesn't give a penny in which language the cron job is written in. Write your program to send email (obviously, the program shouldn't be interactive), and then read man crontab to see what you need to do to run it once an hour.
