Same way, read from the socket.

If the shellscript or perl program can't, make a small pascal cmdline

FPC has a full blown TP clone, however it is currently not maintained, and
therefore not as good as it should be, specially on *NIX, which is why it is
usally not included.

(some versions include it as "fp")

We are still seeking a serious maintainer.
