Perl is a very popular scripting language that is which is used to build different web-oriented applications, including CGI scripts. One of the options that distinguish it from various other languages is the usage of modules - parts of Perl code which do predefined jobs and they're universally accepted. Basically, instead of generating custom-made program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in your script, you're able to "call" a module that already exists for this particular process and use just several lines of code. Therefore, your script will be executed much more rapidly as it is much smaller. Using modules will, in addition make a script simpler to change because you will need to go through a smaller amount of program code. If you want to use Perl on your site, you need to ensure that the needed modules are available on the server.
