Well, passing hash references (or any other complex data structure) is
pretty easy if you're passing them to another subroutine, but if you
really need to pass them to another script, you're going to need to
serialize the data somehow, and then unserialize it on the other side.
One way would be to use YAML, and "Dump" from one script and "Load"
into the other.

If at all possible, you're better off re-writing things as multiple
subroutines running inside of one perl process, though.
