Pipes aren't quite flexible enough to do that sort of two-way communication with the spawned process. There are two ways that I know of offhand that will work: one is IPC::Open3 and the other is

Open3 is conceptually like having pipes to both input and output (and stderr). Expect is closer in spirit to logging in as an interactive user; it gives you the ability to script a two-way conversation with the spawned process. Either one is going to take quite a bit of reading and trying test cases to digest and understand.
