This can be quite easily done using CGIs - if you are going to use perl, you can just as 
easily use bash or csh to do the same thing.

#!/bin/bash
cat << ENDOFHEADER
<HTML>
<HEAD><TITLE>Bulletin Board</TITLE></HEAD>
<BODY>
<PRE>
ENDOFHEADER
cat /www/pcgm/bulletins
cat << ENDOFFOOTER
</PRE>
</BODY>
</HTML>
ENDOFFOOTER

or 

#!/bin/bash
echo '<HTML>
<HEAD><TITLE>Bulletin Board</TITLE></HEAD>
<BODY>
<PRE>'
cat /www/pcgm/bulletins
echo '</PRE>
</BODY>
</HTML>'
