*First* check out:

        Mcom's How To Create Web Services page (in their Netscape Help
directory)
        http://home.mcom.com/home/how-to-create-web-services.html

        select "WWW Development"
        http://www.charm.net/~web/Vlib.html

*then,* from that list, select:

        Providers, Perl
        http://WWW.Stars.com/Vlib/Providers/Perl.html

....and you will find many examples, discussions, manuals and FAQs for Perl.
Read the FAQ.

If you want  some good books, look to O'Reily and Associates (ora.com) for
both 'Learning Perl' [aka, the Llama Book] (the one first-timers should
get) or 'Programming Perl' [aka, the Camel Book.]

Handling forms is actually a GGI operation that may or may not require a
Perl script to do it. Also from the WWW Development list mentioned above,
select:

        Providers, CGI
        http://WWW.Stars.com/Vlib/Providers/CGI.html
