The same way as you would execute any other program on said machine. It isn't Perl specific, but it's specific on the remote (and local) machine configuration - and any routers/firewalls in between.

Typical ways include using rsh (called remsh on some OSses), or UUCP (who remembers working with UUCP?). Unsafe methods, both of them. A someone safer method is the use of ssh - but that's harder to script if you want to make it secure.

But there are other ways. HTTP for instance, in combination with CGI. Or the use of inetd. You could even share a disk with a remote machine and trigger execution that way.

Note that none of the method is Perl specific, and none of the methods is a "will work anywhere" solution.

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

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
