What I meant is, if you were writing a back-end perl application with a
dynamically generated HTML interface that maintains states, uses templates,
processes information, accesses a database, etc... Which perl modules would
you(Everybody / Anybody) personally find most useful.

I am currently using:
Bundle::DBI (DBD::mysql)

The reason I am using these modules is because I have "CGI Programming" by
good ol' O'reilly, however, I saw some dates in the book that made me
cringe, so... before I invest too much effort into eating these modules, I
figured I would see if anybody out here has any strong opinions about which
ones to use.
