I liked the imagery of Peter's answer. The real answer is that you need to build a perl program around the module you want to use and design an interface for your shell script to do what it wants to do. Seems pointless to me: if you went to all that effort, why use the shell at all? But I guess if you had a big chunk of existing code..

This question betrays a fundamental incomprehension of 1) progamming language theory 2) interpretation 3) compilation 5) linking and probably a good many more things besides. The answer is "the same way as you can fill your elephant up with petrol". Find the petrol cap first, then insert nozzle and pull trigger. Stand well back. Peter
