Currently, there is the beginning of a Developer's Guide to Perl XPCOM and the POD documentation for the XPCOM Perl Module.

A FAQ will be available once some questions have been asked frequently. :)

As a preemptive answer to a question that may arise. In order to use XPCOM from Perl scripts, the same environment variables that Mozilla needs to run must be available to the perl interpreter. The best way to do this is to wrap your call to the perl interpreter through the run-mozilla.sh script. e.g.:

  % ./run-mozilla.sh /usr/bin/perl fooscript.pl

Tweaking the mozilla start script as a dedicated Perl wrapper is pretty straight forward.
