Step-by-step: Preparing the ground
Before we even start scraping out the code, there are a few things we'll want to do in advance.

Look around
Dig into a bunch of modules to see how they're written. I'd suggest starting with Text::Tabs, since it's in the standard library and is nice and simple, and then looking at something like Time::Zone, File::Copy and then some of the "Mail::*" modules if you're planning on writing object oriented code.

These should give you an overall feel for how modules are laid out and written.

My personal recommandations would be Template::Toolkit and CGI::Kwiki. Two architectures that have impressed me recently.
