A simple solution would be to use mailto with an instruction to the user to
"Quote Document" or copy the contents of the page into the body of the message.

Yahoo.com has a pretty extensive list of PERL resources located at:
        http://www.yahoo.com/Computers/Languages/Perl/
You should be able to find what you are looking for within their references.
