I'm using Catalyst which has a Captcha plugin and all I did to add
this was:

=item captcha

Generates captcha images.


sub captcha : Local {
    my ( $self, $c ) = @_;
    if ( $c->config->{captcha} ) {
    } else {
        $c->res->status( 404 );

So perhaps you could look at the Captcha plugin and duplicate what it does in
your script.  You can see it's not very complex:


I will note that I found the generated images a bit hard to read at
