This is something you could find in the Perl Cookbook (or even in the 
man pages, if I remember rightly).

Or you could do it really crudely and have a shell script that consists 
of "cat /some/text/file" set up in /etc/services and [x]inetd to spit 
out the information you want. Depends on how secure it needs to be or 
how involved you want to get.
