I have a perl script in a desktop which is doing web scrawling
continuously.
when the internet connection goes down sometimes, the script tries for 5
min. Then it dies.

I want the script to run again once the internet is connected,

How can we achieve this?

Better way would be to check connectivity inside the script itself.
Use Net::Ping to test connectivity.
Something like

use Net::Ping;
my $p = Net::Ping->new;

while (1){
    if ($p->ping('ipno you want check',1)){
                  run_your_function();
     )
}
