Okay, this should be easy.  I am in the middle of "Teach Yourself Perl 5 in 21 Days" right now.  So, I'm learning a lot about programming in Perl.  The problem is, the book doesn't really mention much about using Perl programs in CGI applications (if that is phrased correctly).  The reason I am learning Perl is to create my own Perl scripts to run on my web page, but I still have almost no idea how to do this.  I've seen all kinds of CGI books, other Perl books, and the like.  What I need to know is what is a good book to buy that will teach me stuff about CGI using Perl (again, I'm hoping this is phrased correctly)?  Please email me if you need any clarification.  Thank you!

Here's a couple of choices I've found useful:
- "Teach Yourself CGI Programming with Perl 5 In A Week" (by Eric Herrmann, published by Sams Net, ISBN 1-57521-009-6, 513pp).  This sounds like it might be just what you're looking for - an introduction to CGI scripting, followed by examples in Perl.  I've found it quite useful.  It comes with a CD containing Perl 4 and 5, a few CGI libraries in Perl, and some miscellaneous programs.

- "CGI Programming on the World Wide Web" (by Shishir Gundavaram, published by O'Reilly & Associates, Inc., ISBN 1-56592-168-2, 433pp.)  Like all O'Reilly Nutshell books, this is a good one.  Almost all the examples in the book are done in Perl.

Hope this helps.
