in thread open command for input

Another option is IPC::Open2, which is in core. This will require a bit more code, but should work:

use IPC::Open2; open IN, "<", "commandfile"; # unfortunately, scalar filehandles won't + work this way open OUT, ">", "logfile"; my $pid = open2(">&OUT", "<&IN", "theprogram"); waitpid $pid, 0;

You can also package your application together with module you use with the help of PAR::Packer (its installation is required only on the packager's computer). But I don't know whether it will interfere with PDK or not.

Sorry if my advice was wrong.
