Perl is a well-liked scripting language which is used to make various web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. One of the features that distinguish it from alternative programming languages is the use of modules - batches of Perl code that execute predefined jobs and they are widely accepted. Basically, instead of creating custom code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in the script, you're able to "call" some module which is already available for this particular process and use just a couple of lines of code. Therefore, your script will be executed quicker because it is much smaller. Employing modules will, in addition make your script easier to edit considering that you'll need to browse through much less code. If you'd like to use Perl on your site, you should ensure that the needed modules are present on the server.
