Btw, this should probably be $infile if you decide to keep this version.

Yeah, it should be possible, but I fear that it involves the use of a
bidirectional pipe. You want to pipe some data into the program and
some data out of it. See perldoc perlipc ("Bidirectional Communication
with Another Process").

In short, I think you'd need this:

use FileHandle;
use IPC::Open2;

my($unifdef_in, $unifdef_out);
open2($unifdef_in, $unifdef_out, 'scripts/unifdef', '-U__KERNEL__') ...;

open(my $infile, '<', "$odir/$ofile") || die ...;
while (my $line = <$infile>) {
print $unifdef_in $line;
}
close $infile;
close $unifdef_in; # Send EOF to unifdef, so that it sends EOF to us.
open(my $outfile ...;
while (my $line = <$unifdef_out>) {
print $outfile $line;
}
close $outfile;
close $unifdef_out;
But as you see this is rather lengthy. I also don't know if it's
correct (IOW, completely untested), so you may have to fiddle a bit to
get it working.

Good luck.
