Perl and the WWW? Perish the thought! ;-)

Perl has a long history of use with the web, including what you described.

You could definitely write a wrapper script in perl to do what you want - passing HTML form variables to the exe and scooping up the output and pushing to the browser, but then again you could do the whole thing with perl. It's flexible and powerful and a whole lot of pre-written code and examples await you.
