Well, one option would be to create a temporary file on the disk with the 
contents of the buffer. Check:

$ perldoc -q "temporary file"

for a discussion on how to generate a temporary filename. 

Note that it would involve disk access, which would make it somewhat slow. But 
since the module expects a filename anyhow, it shouldn't be a major concern.
