use perl to authenticate against htaccess


i would like to build kind of a proxy that hides the ip of the destination host
by forwarding its content to the user via cgi-proxy.
the destination host asks for an htaccess-standard user/passwort authentication.
is it possible to have a simple html-form asking the user to enter username and
password on the "proxy-host" and then letting a perl-script authenticate
against the destination host?
