sending variables to a script running in a bgby baxy77bax (Chaplain)

baxy77bax has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
continuation of my everlasting problem
what i wish to do is to run a program :
once the program is started, from time to time (when there is a need) i wish to pass some data (a,b,c,d...) to it. i have no clue how to do this?? should i do it by creating some file that i can read and write to, that program in bg can somehow check when the contest is changed, or is there a way to directly send input data to it ? ... is there a module that deals with this ....
thank you !
P.S. the program has to be running because it stores some data in memory depending on the input passed to it and latter that stored data is being accessed depending on a variable passed to it in a second iteration.
