Calling PowerShell from Within Perl

Recently, I’ve been doing a bit of scripting for use inside a Windows environment and as such became somewhat interested in some of the functionality that is offered up by PowerShell.  As a result I began experimenting with calling PowerShell commands from within a Perl script.  Below is a simple example, that when run with appropriate privileges can take a list of PC names and clear the security log on each PC.  

use strict;
use warnings;

open(my $hosts, "<", "hosts.txt")
   or die "cannot open < hosts.txt: $!";
   my $host=$_;
   system("powershell -Command \"& {Clear-EventLog -Logname Security -ComputerName $host;}\"");

close $hosts;
