3.25: Where can I learn about CGI or Web programming in Perl?

    For modules, get the CGI or LWP modules from CPAN. For textbooks, see
    the two especially dedicated to web stuff in the question on books. For
    problems and questions related to the web, like "Why do I get 500
    Errors" or "Why doesn't it run from the browser right when it runs fine
    on the command line", see the troubleshooting guides and references in
    perlfaq9 or in the CGI MetaFAQ:



The perlfaq-workers, a group of volunteers, maintain the perlfaq. They
are not necessarily experts in every domain where Perl might show up,
so please include as much information as possible and relevant in any
corrections. The perlfaq-workers also don't have access to every
operating system or platform, so please include relevant details for
corrections to examples that do not work on particular platforms.
Working code is greatly appreciated.
