I am using the socket option for on the fly alerts to other programs, and
it seems to work very well.

If you look in snortdir/src/output-plugins/spo_alert_unixsock.h it lists
the format that the socket outputs data in. Just a note if you're running
on BSD, you have to create the socket in your listener program, the snort
option doesn't create the socket itself.

Hmm.. Would the (fairly undocumented) socket do it? Don't ask me how,
never used the socket option before but it might do what you want...
