  octave can use signals to ask another program to start an action.
For example, octave does "kill -USR1" to tell a vrml browser to pick
up data from a file. The sending code is in the function "vrml_browse"
of my vrml toolbox, at (Šþetienne/octave/).

  On the receiver end, you must specify what actions are done when a 
signal USR1 is received. This should be easy (trivial, in Perl).
