Perl interface

I am looking for a way to communicate with Perl from the Applescript application. Basically a GUI needed so ugly terminal won't show in a user's face (I personally like it).

Say, program will start Perl and when Perl asks a question - it should show in GUI. Question answered - it should be passed back to Perl and so on.

This is for Perl program installation.
Thanks!

There's probably a way to do that, but it might be easier to let AppleScript (or AS Studio) drive it, then call into Perl to do processing?

Can Applescript read and write to "pipes". Perl can. You could open a pipe or even socket
