The network itself? No.
How do your machines get IP addresses?
Is there any dedicated DHCP server?
If yes, what's the OS? Could you query your server's arp cache through your perl script?
If no (i.e. your router has a DHCP server role as well), I'm afraid you can't do much, apart from trying to find a way to keep your arp cache up-to-date.
