I would like to add the Win32::API to the Perl which comes with get_iplayer.
Is that possible?

Surely, on a Windows machine, all the necessary Win32::* should be installed already? What does the following command sequence give for you, my output is as below:

cpan> m Win32::API
Module id = Win32::API
    CPAN_USERID  BULKDD (Daniel Dragan <bul...@cpan.org>)
    CPAN_FILE    B/BU/BULKDD/Win32/Win32-API-0.84.tar.gz
    MANPAGE      Win32::API - Perl Win32 API Import Facility
    INST_FILE    C:\Programs\Perl\lib\Win32\API.pm

cpan> q
Lockfile removed.

More generally, if you want to see all the modules beginning with 'win32', you can substitute the following for the cpan command:

cpan> m /^win32.*/

Here is the script I'm trying to run.  It analyses two directories for their
total size and returns an output in a format suitable for MRTG.  Perhaps I
should just substitute Win64 for Win32?  I've only used Win32 before.

Here's the script in case it clarifies things...

# From: http://www.perlmonks.org/?node_id=2311
# and: https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=61520

# Note that Windows Vista/Server 2008 or later is required for GetTickCount64.
# This version returns bytes, not MB.

use strict;
use Win32::API;
use Sys::Hostname;

my $GetTickCount;
$GetTickCount = Win32::API->new("kernel32", "int GetTickCount64()");
my $uptime;
my $dir1 = '.';
my $dir2 = '.';

if (@ARGV[0] ne "") {
   $dir1 = @ARGV[0];

if (@ARGV[1] ne "") {
   $dir2 = @ARGV[1];

print &dir_tree_size($dir1) . "\n";
print &dir_tree_size($dir2) . "\n";
$uptime = $GetTickCount->Call() / 1000;
printf  "%d day(s)  %dh  %dm\n", int($uptime/86400), int(($uptime/3600)%24),
print "PC " . hostname . "\n";
exit 0;

sub dir_tree_size {
   my $dir = shift;
   my ($i,$total, $f);
   $total = 0;
   opendir DIR, $dir;
   my @files = grep !/^\.\.?$/, readdir DIR;
   for $i (@files) {
     $f = "$dir/$i";
     if(-d $f) {
       $total += dir_tree_size($f) }
     else {
       $total += -s $f}
   return $total;

Although I've written one quite complicated script in Perl, to call GetIPlayer as it happens, I don't program in it often enough to class myself as expert enough to help with the above, but perhaps this helps, it shells out to DOS:
