I seem to remember a Perl interpreter *plugin* for Netscape Navigator 
which would parse perl files and do what you seem to be asking. Though I 
had never used it, and this would have been a *long* time ago. Probably 
when Netscape 3 was new - what, 1997?

Just run apache, it's relatively painless. :-)
