That should work fine. You need to put the shell/perl script in the 
agi-bin directory specified in /etc/asterisk/asterisk.conf (typically 
/var/lib/asterisk/agi-bin/). Make sure you remember to chmod +x your 
bash script, or it won't execute. :)

Something like this should work fine:

# uncomment one of these:
#/usr/bin/lynx -source http://your.site.com/foo > /dev/null 2>&1
/usr/bin/wget -O - http://your.site.com/foo > /dev/null 2>&1

You can write AGI scripts in anything you like - it uses stdin and
stdout to communicate with Asterisk (set variables, send commands,
etc.). Check out the last link I sent in my previous mail for details.
