    We are working on a project which it requires to invoke a command on a
    remote server and read the output and process the response.

    What do we need to accomplish this task.

    Thanks for any response.

    Regards

    You can use the LWP::Simple module for fetching a web page from an HTTP
    server. You can use HTML::TokeParser to parse the returned text.

    Pick up a copy of "Perl & LWP", Sean M. Burke, O'Reilly. for more
    information.

    FYI: this newsgroup is defunct. Try comp.lang.perl.misc in the future.
