Thanks for the tip perigeeV I think I found my solution, albeit not as elegant as I had hoped.
I couldn't use the shared memory function because IPC::ShareLite won't compile on Win32 and is required. But Cache::Cache will still compile with it.
So my solution is to use Cache::FileCache. I've include two quick proof of concept scripts to demonstrate:
First run the 'writer':
Then run the 'reader':
Looks like a winner, and only after about 18hrs of banging my head against the pile of soda cans on my desk!
