How do I make simple dynamic web pages using perl?

How should I develop simple dynamic web pages using perl? Does anyone have any suggestions on how best to produce simple web pages in perl that execute logic (e.g., opening property documents to retrieve property values and saving back changes). I am new to perl and would like some detail instructions or links to tutorials. Would a framework like Mason be overkill?
