Surely they would be the same thing...?

Nope, not at all.

Say you, Gerard, have a 10% chance of being flamed by me per second. This isn't the same as a 10% chance per year. Say I, the Anonymous Monk, decide to base the flame or not on a die roll. I Take a 10-sided die and roll it, if it comes up a 1, I flame, anything else, I don't (probably should be the other way around ;-)). Now, if I did this once a second and once a year, which scenario results in you having a greater chance of being flamed?

[jdporter]: ok, LanX, then what?
[jdporter]: It doesn't have to be line by line. Just "my program" "writes" to the external prog and also/then "reads" from it.
LanX open (You are not allowed to open to a command that pipes both in and out, but see IPC::Open2, IPC::Open3, and Bidirectional Communication with Another Process in perlipc for alternatives.)
[jdporter]: IPC::Open2, I guess
[jdporter]: yes, that
