Perl is a preferred scripting language which is employed to build various web-oriented apps, including CGI scripts. One of the options which distinguish it from many other languages is the usage of modules - batches of Perl code which do predefined tasks and they are commonly accepted. In simple terms, as an alternative to creating custom-made program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code inside your script, you are able to "call" a module that is already available for this particular process and use just a few lines of program code. This way, your script shall be executed much more quickly because it will be much smaller. Using modules will, in addition make a script much easier to change because you will have to search through a smaller amount of code. If you would like to use Perl on your website, you should make sure that the required modules are available on the server.
