Perl is a well-liked scripting language which is used to create different web-oriented applications, including CGI scripts. One of the options that differentiate it from various other languages is the usage of modules - parts of Perl program code that perform predefined jobs and they are widely accepted. Basically, as an alternative to writing tailor-made code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code inside your script, you are able to "call" a module which is already available for this specific job and use just a couple of lines of program code. Due to this fact, your script will be executed a lot faster since it'll be much smaller. Using modules will also make the script simpler to modify considering that you'll need to browse through a smaller amount of program code. In case you want to use Perl on your site, you have to make sure that the required modules are present on your server.
