PERL on IIS 3.0: counters, etc.

I have a customer who REALLY wants to run PERL scripts on his pages. My
last experience with PERL was a nightmare -- Netscape Fasttrack server
puked HARD on all CGI scripts.

Does anyone have PERL running seamlessly on a heavily hit IIS 3.0 server,
and if so, which implementation? Is there a good page or collection of
sample scripts for counters, forms handlers, etc, that work well on IIS?
My experience thus far has been the NT-based web servers and *any* CGI
simply won't exist without causing instabilities. I tried 20-some counters
on Netscape's NT server, and ALL of them resulted in unreliability (server
crashes after hours of use).

Thanks in advance for all help anyone can provide, even if its just an URL,
saying LOOK HERE.
