    Sure... what do you need to do?  CF can make HTTP requests, or consume web services; similarly it can also expose web services, and obviously one can make HTTP requests for CF resources.


    It's difficult to answer your question without having an idea of what you need to do, though.

    OK, so are these PERL scripts being server by a web server, or are they just shell scripts?  If there's a URL that you can hit to run the script, then CF can make an HTTP request to the URL.  If they're just shell scripts, I guess... <cfexecute> should be able to work.  I've never used <cfexecute> for anything other than investigating how <cfexecute> works, so am quickly going to get out of my depth there.


    Given SVN can be configured to run via HTTP, can you not just do both the SVN and DB interaction just with CF and dispense with the PERL? I suppose it depends on how much existing work has gone into the PERL stuff.


    You're raised your <cfexecute> question on a different thread, and I've prompted you for more info there.  I recommend you remove that part of your question on this thread.
