You'll need to setup SSH keys in advance to do so  without an
additional password for the device to download the script.

Alternatively...  SCP the file to a temporary file on the device then
"load merge" the uploaded file,  to merge config from the script.

Net::SSH::Expect from CPAN  to connect  via  ssh  from perl.

Something like
use Net::SSH::Perl;
use Net::SSH::Expect;

my $ssh = Net::SSH::Expect->new(  host =>
'myfavoritehostname.example.com',  user => 'blahblahblah', password =>
'1234',   raw_pty => 1);
$ssh->login(q[blahblah at myfavoritehostname.example.com's password]);
$output1 = $ssh->exec("configure private");
# $blah = $ssh->exec("load merge
username at scriptserver.example.com:/path/to/scriptfile_to_load.txt");
print scalar $ssh->exec("show | compare");
# commit
