Perl is a very popular scripting language that is that is used to make various web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. Among the options that distinguish it from many other programming languages is the usage of modules - batches of Perl code that execute predefined jobs and they are universally accepted. Basically, as an alternative to creating custom-made code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in the script, you're able to "call" some module which already exists for this specific process and use only a few lines of program code. Thus, your script will be executed more quickly as it will be smaller. Using modules will additionally make a script simpler to change due to the fact that you will have to search through a smaller amount of program code. In case you would like to use Perl on your website, you should make sure that the necessary modules are present on your server.
