Perl is a very popular scripting language that's which is used to create various web-oriented applications, including CGI scripts. One of the characteristics which differentiate it from other programming languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl program code that complete predefined tasks and they are widely accepted. In simple terms, instead of writing custom code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in your script, you'll be able to "call" some module that already exists for this specific process and use just several lines of program code. Consequently, your script will be executed a lot faster since it'll be much smaller. Employing modules will, in addition make the script simpler to modify as you'll have to go through a smaller amount of code. In case you would like to use Perl on your website, you should make sure that the necessary modules are present on your server.
