You could use POE ( http://poe.perl.org ) or fork and use IPC, or you 
could write your own non-blocking IO code. Stem** ( 
http://www.stemsystems.com ) is possible too. It all depends on what 
this socket is doing, and what the main program is doing.

** I don't know stem, but from what I gather from Uri Guttman (the 
Author) it can do anything POE can.
