Any particular reason you want a .pl and not a .cgi? In most cases, you can just change the name of a .cgi file to .pl.
Of course, if the program is looking for itself, you may need to do a little editing inside the file to change references from .cgi to .pl (this, in most instances, will not be necessary).
A popular banner rotation program is WebAdverts, which has the features your mentioned -- and it uses a .pl extension
FYI -- it's Perl, not Pearl (Practical Extraction and Reporting Language)
