Perl is a well-known scripting language that is that is used to build various web-oriented applications, including CGI scripts. One of the characteristics that distinguish it from various other programming languages is the usage of modules - parts of Perl code that complete predefined jobs and they are commonly accepted. In simple terms, as an alternative to writing tailor-made code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in the script, you are able to "call" a module that is already available for this specific job and use just several lines of program code. Due to this, your script shall be executed faster since it'll be much smaller. Using modules will also make your script simpler to modify considering that you'll need to browse through much less code. If you intend to use Perl on your site, you need to ensure that the needed modules are present on the server.
