comment Perl installation on Debian vs CentOS
ikegami: some linux distributions come with perl, but only a very stripped down set of modules. (Don't know if that's the situation here.)

comment Setting up scripts in Amazon EC2 Cloud
@racket99: EBS is like a blank hard disk; you have to format it with a filesystem and mount it. Amazon does have a simple step-by-step guide to getting started with EBS.

comment Setting up scripts in Amazon EC2 Cloud
I second this, with the caveat that you verify your shared hosting allows you to run scheduled scripts (some do not). Amazon provides new customers a free year for most EC2-related things, with overage charges for some usage categories. Even aside from that, it's worth noting that a continuously running EC2 micro instance, reserved for 3 years, can work out to under $8/month.

comment run Perl script as another user on windows
That deals with the "with different user" but completely misses the "automatically every day" bit.
