Call another cgi from a perl cgi

In a perl5 cgi file, I would like to call another cgi file several times in a loop.  Each time I want to have the new cgi file called with a different value.  ie:   value=xxxxx
The called cgi would use the xxxxx to perform a function and end.  The first file would, after a short delay, call the second cgi with another value of xxxxx, etc.  The Initial file would be called from a browser with
What code to I need in the first to call the second? (I assume the second will do it's thing and then just exit).

Is the other file on the same machine as the first file?

$ENV{'QUERY_STRING'} = "whatever";
exec $local_path_to_script;
