    Other solution. Insert $var variable before the file and send the stream. The Perl script will read it at BEGIN step:
    #!/bin/bash file="timer" var="Two" (echo $var; cat $file) | perl -e 'BEGIN { $var=<> } print <>; END { p +rint $var }' > output

    Ok... Is UGLY, I know it... but I have impatience!
