in thread run a perl script automatically every 24 hours

Why wouldn't you use the Task Scheduler?

You could always do something like:

while (1) { # your script goes here. sleep 86400; }
But that would be a bit silly.
Use the Task Scheduler - that's what it is for.

Or, you could look at Cron for Windows.
Or maybe CronW, which appears to be a Perl implementation of the same.

Dude - spend 1 minute Googling. It doesn't bite ;)
