Perl is a very popular scripting language that's which is used to make various web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. Among the features which differentiate it from other programming languages is the usage of modules - parts of Perl code which do predefined tasks and they are universally accepted. In simple terms, as an alternative to generating custom code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code inside your script, you will be able to "call" some module that already exists for this specific process and use just a couple of lines of program code. This way, your script shall be executed much more rapidly because it is much smaller. Employing modules will also make the script much easier to change considering that you'll need to browse through a smaller amount of program code. If you intend to use Perl on your website, you should make sure that the necessary modules are present on the server.
