Jumpstart a Perl CGI-App project with this reusable MVC object-oriented "starter" application. Includes session management, user authentication and management (sign in/out, forgot password), clean MVC separation for database model classes.
I used this project to introduce myself to Perl web/CGI programming. The project has a very nice balance between features and simplicity (that is essential when one is taking his first steps), but the real killer factor is the documentation that is best of the class. Plus the author is present in the CGI::Application mailing list.
