* CPAN - The Comprehensive Perl Archive Network
To let CPAN describe itself: "The CPAN contains the collected wisdom of the entire Perl community: hundreds of Perl utilities, several books' worth of documentation, and the entire Perl distribution. If it's written in Perl, and it's helpful and free, it's in the CPAN."
If you want to do something in Perl, someone has probably already written a module to help you - check CPAN first!

* The Apache/Perl Integration Project
Home page for The Apache/Perl integration project (aka mod_perl) This project brings together the full power of the Perl programming language and the Apache HTTP server. With mod_perl it is possible to write Apache modules entirely in Perl. In addition, the persistent interpreter embedded in the server avoids the overhead of starting an external interpreter and the penalty of Perl start-up time.
A must for high performance CGI's.
* Intro to Mod_Perl
A rundown on how to get started with mod_perl for running "embedded" Perl scripts with the Apache server.
* EvoScript Perl App Framework
