Perl is a well-known scripting language which is employed to make various web-oriented apps, including CGI scripts. One of the options which distinguish it from other programming languages is the usage of modules - parts of Perl code which complete predefined tasks and they're widely accepted. Basically, as an alternative to creating custom code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in your script, you will be able to "call" a module which already exists for this particular task and use only a couple of lines of program code. Consequently, your script will be executed faster because it will be smaller. Using modules will additionally make a script simpler to change as you will have to search through much less code. In case you'd like to use Perl on your site, you should ensure that the mandatory modules can be found on your server.
