Is it possible to execute a perl script on a buffer?  (Whether it's
through something like M-x perl-script or binding the perl script to a
lisp function).

Does the buffer contain the script itself or the data you want to script
to read as standard input?  Either way, you want to use `C-x h' to mark
the whole buffer as the region, then `M-|' to pipe it to a program
(either the perl interpreter itself, or a Perl script).
