As far as I'm concerned, this is pretty vague.  _You_ will be doing the
API, or so it seems, so you have the choice.  If you choose SysV IPC
then there are a couple of Perl modules such as IPC::SysV.  On the
other hand, you might prefer UNIX sockets or even TCP to communicate
between processes. 

Or did you meant that the IPC API is already defined ?
