What is

It's an old Perl library for writing CGI programs.

and how do I use it?

DON'T! is horribly outdated and contains some serious security problems and is not fully compliant with the CGI spec. The best way to write CGI programs is to use the CGI module. If you must work on existing code which uses, the CGI module has a compatibility mode that will make it pretty easy to update the existing code.
