I guess it depends on where your input, output and stderr are coming from/going

I used the following in a CGI which grabs a URL, feeds the page to STDIN
and returns STDOUT, but doesn't do anything with STDERR:

$TIDYCOMMAND = '/usr/local/tidy/tidy -config /usr/local/tidy/config.txt';
$| = 1;

  use IPC::Open2;
  open2 (*TIDYREAD, *TIDYWRITE, $TIDYCOMMAND) or die "cannot open
  print TIDYWRITE $html;
  close TIDYWRITE;
  while ( <TIDYREAD> ) {
    print STDOUT "$_";
  close TIDYREAD;

If you want to do something with STDERR - you can use Open3.

Hope that helps.
