Yes, I think it should be separated, makes conversion over to mod_perl
easier for people like me (who dont know Perl too well).

Yes, just basic stuff, so people can see how to expand it if it needs more.

I am for renaming it, it tripped me up as well.
Another item for the search.cgi script.
I had to modify my copy to do this.
If a search item is not found, then put a message on the screen, saying
The search for: ".. your criteria here..." was not found.
Right now, you get the same screen back, so you are left trying to figure
out it if there is a problem in your script, and what the problem might have
