Perl is a well-liked scripting language that's employed to make different web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. Among the characteristics which differentiate it from other programming languages is the usage of modules - batches of Perl program code which perform predefined jobs and they are commonly accepted. Basically, instead of generating tailor-made program code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you can "call" some module that is already available for this particular task and use only several lines of code. In consequence, your script will be executed quicker as it will be much smaller. Using modules will additionally make your script easier to modify considering that you'll have to search through a smaller amount of code. In case you wish to use Perl on your website, you should make sure that the mandatory modules are present on the server.
