Perl is a preferred scripting language which is employed to build various web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. One of the attributes which distinguish it from many other programming languages is the employment of modules - batches of Perl program code which do predefined tasks and they're widely accepted. In simple terms, rather than generating custom-made code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in your script, you are able to "call" some module that is already available for this specific task and use just several lines of program code. In consequence, your script shall be executed faster as it will be smaller. Employing modules will, in addition make your script easier to modify since you'll have to browse through much less program code. In case you'd like to use Perl on your site, you have to ensure that the mandatory modules can be found on the server.
