Perl is a popular scripting language which is designed to make different web-oriented applications, such as CGI scripts. Among the options which differentiate it from many other programming languages is the use of modules - batches of Perl program code that complete predefined tasks and they're widely accepted. Basically, instead of creating tailor-made program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in the script, you're able to "call" some module that already exists for this particular process and use just several lines of program code. Due to this fact, your script shall be executed quicker as it will be smaller. Using modules will additionally make a script easier to edit as you'll need to browse through much less program code. If you would like to use Perl on your site, you should make sure that the mandatory modules can be found on the server.
