Perl is a popular scripting language that is that is used to build different web-oriented applications, including CGI scripts. One of the characteristics that distinguish it from alternative programming languages is the usage of modules - parts of Perl code which execute predefined jobs and they're commonly accepted. Basically, instead of generating tailor-made code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in your script, you're able to "call" some module that is already available for this particular job and use only a couple of lines of code. Therefore, your script shall be executed more quickly as it'll be much smaller. Employing modules will, in addition make your script easier to modify as you will need to search through a smaller amount of program code. If you intend to use Perl on your website, you have to make sure that the required modules can be found on the server.
