I believed that Mac::Glue was the popular "perly" way to call

Please don't tell me I have to system("osascript", ...) ;-)
If you do have to drop to that level, you can use Paul Fenwick's
IPC::System::Simple module. It allows you to do things like
system("foo") and read the result much more easily that with perl's
built in system call. You can also do 'run', 'capture', and 'runx'
which are very convenient and safer than system.
Its on the CPAN and if you have the good luck of running a debian
based distribution, or even are running some form of apt on your Mac
box, you can install the deb libipc-system-simple-perl.
