How can I take a backup in Oracle to a particular destination using Perl (CGI script)? Is it possible to take the backup to the image database also?

I would highly recommend using RMAN for your database backups instead of Perl. Like Perl, RMAN is platform-independent and available on any platform your Oracle database will run on. And RMAN has more features than you can use in Perl. Click here for more information on backing up an Oracle database.

If you must use Perl, then use Perl to envoke the RMAN executable to perform your backup.
