Running perl script in backgound


I want to run a Perl script on Windows server continuously except it should halt/should not run from 11.45 pm to 12.30 am.  Please let me know if there is a provision to do so.

So you want to halt it for 45 minutes.

That is 45*60=2700 seconds

You can use sleep function:

sleep 2700;

However, how do I specify the time?
sleep 60*(45-$m)-$s if ($s,$m,$h)=(localtime time+15*60) and $h==0 and $m <45;
$timeval = time();

print "Return time is $timeval \n";

$local_time = gmtime( $timeval );
