Perl is a very popular scripting language which is that is used to build various web-oriented applications, including CGI scripts. Among the options that distinguish it from many other programming languages is the usage of modules - parts of Perl code which do predefined jobs and they are commonly accepted. In simple terms, instead of writing custom program code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you will be able to "call" some module which is already available for this particular job and use only a few lines of program code. Consequently, your script shall be executed much more rapidly as it'll be smaller. Using modules will additionally make your script simpler to modify because you will have to browse through a smaller amount of code. In case you wish to use Perl on your website, you have to ensure that the required modules can be found on the server.
