How to create automatic backup in Cisco ASA through Perl script

Hi guys,

I am a firewall engineer 6 months back I started my career. Our clients requirement is that every night at 1 am backup of Cisco ASA 5520(show running config) should move to winscp server without any manual intervention and with the help of thirdparty software. I searched in Google I found that we can configure automatic backup through Perl Script. As I am a fresher so I am not that much of aware of firewall. Friends kindly help me. Please explain in details along with the steps.

ASA 5520,  Version 8.2(3)
