Check out http://search.cpan.org/~crenz/Net-OpenSoundControl-0.05/ -  
it's a Perl module for doing OSC that specifically has an OSC client  

use Net::OpenSoundControl::Client;

   my $client = Net::OpenSoundControl::Client->new(
       Host => "", Port => 7777)
       or die "Could not start client: $@\n";

   # This is a very slow fade-in...
   for (0..100) {
       $client->send(['/Main/Volume', 'f', $_ / 100]);

Dunno if this helps you out or not ...
