in thread redirecting output to STDERR and STDOUT

I can confirm that /dev/stdin and friends work on Linux.

If you are on an otherwise unixy system that does not have these, you should be able to create a FIFO (a.k.a. named pipe) for each stream, spawn child processes to pipe them to STDOUT and STDERR, and hand the FIFO names to C. See "Named Pipes" in perlipc.
