    There's a Perl client driver for Selenium. I've only used the Java version, but it's pretty useful, if not quite mature. That'll only help you for web apps of course.

    You can also use curl to emulate the browser from a Perl script. http://curl.haxx.se/

    This can be tricky though and I'd only resort to it if the other suggestions aren't up to the job.

    There are a slew of "Test::WWW" tools on CPAN ...
