[ale] slaving a process

I have a executable that I want to slave to a perl script.
Basically it is a menu driven compiled program... we will call it 'Menu'
I have a perl script that I want the Menu program to read stanard input
too and write standard output too.
The perl script I can change. The menu program I cannot.
So given this I was thinking along the lines of
menu_driver.pl | Menu > /tmp/named_pipe.out
and then have menu_driver.pl read from the named_pipe.
Will this work.
Is there a better way.
