lindex has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Ok, so I have an IO::Socket handle connected to a port on a machine and I have a program on my local machine, now I want to put the output from the socket to the input of the program and the output of the program to go to the input of the socket. In other words, pipe them together transparent to the local program running on the local machine. So my question is whats the best way todo so (theres a few methods out there I have seen). please feel free to post example code to demonstrate your point :)
