Or go one step even better, and use CGI::Application. Not only does it 
handle all the mess for you (by using but it also provides a 
framework for your application that makes sense.

Mix it up with HTML::Template to do the HTML presentation, and 
Form::Validator (I think thats the module) and you have everything you 
need to make an application quickly and safely.

The great thing about CGI::Application, though, as everyone knows, is 
that if you decide you need it to run faster, you can with very little 
modification make it a mod_perl app.

Just my 2c. :)
