Perl is a very popular scripting language that is that is used to create different web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. Among the options that distinguish it from other languages is the employment of modules - batches of Perl code that complete predefined tasks and they're commonly accepted. In simple terms, rather than creating custom-made code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in your script, you'll be able to "call" a module that is already available for this specific job and use just several lines of program code. In consequence, your script shall be executed a lot quicker because it'll be much smaller. Employing modules will also make a script much easier to edit considering that you will need to search through much less code. In case you want to use Perl on your site, you need to make sure that the necessary modules are available on the server.
