Web automation using perl

Hi all,

I have to test a web application which has secure authorization.

It is a ticketing site where I can create tickets,view and close them.

I am trying to automate it in perl and I am not aware of how to do UI automation using perl.

Please guide me in steps to implement a perl automation in testing the web application.

Thanks in advance

regards,

Guru
