wait, what? old CGI model?

This is Perl, there are more web frameworks than you can shake a stick
at. Ones that are truly perlish, others that are clones of whatever
flavor you like from any other language. And most all plug into
mod_perl if you want apache for the most powerful combination you can
get. nginex and others work as well.

Whether you want a modern kitchen sink tool like Catalyst, embedded
code like Mason, toolkits like CGI::Ex. There is a wide variety of
very mature options.
