Perl is a well-known scripting language which is that is used to create different web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. One of the features which distinguish it from many other programming languages is the usage of modules - batches of Perl code which complete predefined jobs and they are universally accepted. Basically, rather than writing custom program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you can "call" a module which already exists for this specific process and use just a couple of lines of program code. Therefore, your script shall be executed much more rapidly as it is much smaller. Using modules will, in addition make your script simpler to modify considering that you'll need to browse through a smaller amount of program code. In case you'd like to use Perl on your website, you have to ensure that the needed modules are available on the server.
