 Postgresql newbie username/password question

I've just installed v7.1 and got the DBD stuff working so I'm able to
connect to a test database and return data within a perl script.

I'm slightly confused how the concept of user authentication works in
Postgresql.  I ideally need to have a specific user to connect to a
database from the web, how do I pass this detail through the DBD, I
don't see an option in the connect string.  I was using Oracle and you
could specify user and password details to the connect string okay ?  Am
I missing something obvious ?

Do I need to do some setup with the hba.conf file for 'local' users ?
