Perl is a very popular scripting language that's that is used to create various web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. Among the features which differentiate it from alternative programming languages is the usage of modules - parts of Perl code that do predefined tasks and they are commonly accepted. Basically, rather than creating custom program code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you're able to "call" a module which already exists for this particular job and use only several lines of program code. Therefore, your script shall be executed faster as it'll be much smaller. Employing modules will, in addition make your script simpler to change considering that you'll need to go through much less program code. In case you want to use Perl on your website, you should ensure that the required modules are present on the server.
