Or you can simply watch a particular dir from openscad.
Like /home/user/.config/openscad/commands_to_execute/X

Where X is a number.

And you simply write a new file containing the commands.
Once openscad discovers it has a new file in the dir, it executes it,
and delete.
You can even implement a queue mechanism.

On linux there is a kernel support to discover file changes, so no need to poll
every second.

I think it is the easiest solution. And it is very scriptable
friendly. Even a bash
script can control openscad.

Best regards,
 Laszlo
