cgi / perl

I am going to take the microsoft website for an example in my description. The Microsoft website as you know has hundreds maybe thousands of web pages. When microsoft want to change on of the menus or titles at the top/bottom of the page; They don't go through every page individually ediitting it. Maybe they edit one simple perl/php/asp/cgi script which will change the whole site.

I am wanting a similar sort of site. A site where i can have many pages but all run from one simple editable script. Then if i feel i need to change the site title, I can do so in a matter of minutes.

For Example: http://www.my-site.com/cgi-bin/view.pl?Page46586

I don't think I have PHP or ASP active on my hosting package, but perl and cgi are. I also have sendmail option if i need it. My bandwidth my be kept to a minimum, so where possible I would like small but powerful scripts.

Hope You Can Help Me

Thank You
