"mail this article" cgi
Just wondering if anyone out there knows a good perl cgi that can do the following:

1) receive hits from an "email this article" link within a normal HTML page (so that every page has a nice, simple link, i.e., to <http://host.com/cgi-bin/send.pl>),
2) using the HTTP_REFERER environmental variable, reflect the TITLE of the article at the top of a simple mailto form that asks for recipient & sender name & email,
3) suck up the html article, strip out the html, format nicely, then email to the recipient.

The nytimes.com site is a very good example of what i'm looking for. Any suggestions?
