If you're sending parameters to the perl script, your best bet would be having the cron call a shell script, then use the shell script to call perl with the parameters - I just ran across somebody having a similar problem attempting to call a PHP script through cron. After sticking it in a shell script, the PHP script could receive parameters via that, and all worked no problem.

I'm not entirely sure off-hand how you'd catch those parameters in the perl script though.
