Perl is a well-liked scripting language that's designed to build various web-oriented apps, such as CGI scripts. One of the options that differentiate it from various other programming languages is the employment of modules - parts of Perl program code which execute predefined jobs and they are widely accepted. Basically, instead of writing custom-made code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in your script, you are able to "call" a module that already exists for this particular task and use only several lines of code. Due to this, your script will be executed much more quickly because it is much smaller. Employing modules will also make the script easier to change as you will need to browse through a smaller amount of code. In case you would like to use Perl on your site, you should ensure that the needed modules are present on the server.
