Actually this is one thing the MVC frameworks like Catalyst ( 
http://www.catalystframework.org/ ), Jifty ( 
http://www.jifty.org/view/HomePage ), CGI-Application, CGI-Prototype, etc. 
aim to solve. You probably shouldn't re-invent the wheel.

Jifty, Maypole, Catalyst, Mojo, Gantry, AxKit, WebGUI

Chuck Norris wrote a complete Perl 6 implementation in a day but then
destroyed all evidence with his bare hands, so no one will know his secrets.
