How to setup an application properly ??

P: n/a
Hi there,
I recently started writing perl and i like it more and more.
Syntax is something you can easily learn from a book and then just do
it. You will get better as you go.

But i seem to get stuck on the best way to setup an application.
I've read about the perl modules and how to write your own.
Does one write a lot of modules and call them from the main.pl or should
i create one big main.pl. Do i work with "require" or "do" etc or should
i not (and why??)?

Is there a good book / website/ manual on how to do a proper setup of an
application?
I don't mean to receive a ready to go answer from you guys and galls but
can't seem to find any documentation on the subject..... Please point me
in the right direction here.

To give some more details: Most of my scripts / applications are used in
my Oracle DBA job. So lots of small scripts checking rdbms related
things. Lots of logfiles to parse, etc.

Any help is welcome !!
Regards,

Robert
