Perl is a very popular scripting language that is that is used to build various web-oriented applications, including CGI scripts. Among the options which distinguish it from alternative languages is the employment of modules - parts of Perl program code which perform predefined tasks and they are commonly accepted. Basically, as an alternative to generating tailor-made code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you will be able to "call" a module which is already available for this specific job and use just several lines of code. In consequence, your script shall be executed faster as it'll be much smaller. Employing modules will also make your script easier to change since you'll have to search through a smaller amount of code. In case you'd like to use Perl on your website, you need to ensure that the needed modules are present on your server.
