Perl's motto is "there is more than way to do it" so there isn't a good answer to "is it hard"

I suggest starting at for general perl stuff, and for apache stuff
- there is extensive mod_perl help there.

I think you really are looking at apache issues so look up about the authentication/authorization
phases of the apache cycle.

I don't know the configuration of your server - mod_perl may or may not be installed. It gets
installed at apache build time, at least by me. can tell you if there is a way
to do otherwise, but I am not sure about if it is or not.

I also would suspect you can get similar abilities from mod_php which may or may not be installed.
I don't know the definitive source for info on that, but I do know there is a brand new php
cookbook from O'Reilley which might address using mod_php to access apache internals as mod_perl

Googling "php apache authentication" might turn up some useful stuff. I don't think what I
described earlier strictly needs to be implemented in perl, just that is the world I come
from. You could probably do it in Java too - substitute java for php in that google suggestion.
