Perl is a well-known scripting language that is that is used to build various web-oriented apps, which includes CGI scripts. Among the features that differentiate it from other programming languages is the usage of modules - parts of Perl program code which do predefined jobs and they're widely accepted. In simple terms, as an alternative to creating custom-made code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you can "call" some module that already exists for this particular task and use just a few lines of program code. Because of this, your script will be executed more quickly since it will be much smaller. Employing modules will additionally make your script easier to change as you will have to search through much less code. If you want to use Perl on your site, you should ensure that the needed modules are present on the server.
