Perl is a very popular scripting language that is which is used to create different web-oriented applications, including CGI scripts. One of the features that differentiate it from many other programming languages is the use of modules - batches of Perl code that do predefined jobs and they're commonly accepted. Basically, rather than generating custom-made code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code inside your script, you'll be able to "call" a module that is already available for this particular process and use only several lines of program code. Due to this fact, your script will be executed more rapidly since it is smaller. Employing modules will also make your script easier to change as you will need to go through a smaller amount of code. In case you want to use Perl on your site, you have to ensure that the necessary modules are available on the server.
