More than likely, is already installed on your system. If for some reason it isn't, yes, it would probably make life a little easier for it to be installed, but you can use a private copy, provided you use lib at the top of your script. For example:
#!/usr/bin/perl use lib "/my/module/directory"; use CGI;

Perl will then look in your specified directory for the module before looking through the the default directories in @INC.

As far as re-coding if you use goes, the short answer is technically, no, you don't have to re-code everything. Others may disagree with me, but personally, I'd be inclined to just use for the parts in question for the time being. Once you get it working, dig into a bit further and see if there are ways to make your script better and more efficient by taking advantage of more of the features of

That's my 8**(1/3) cents. Hope that helps.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
