Perl is a popular scripting language that's that is used to make different web-oriented apps, including CGI scripts. Among the attributes that differentiate it from alternative programming languages is the employment of modules - parts of Perl program code which perform predefined jobs and they are commonly accepted. In simple terms, as an alternative to creating custom code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code inside your script, you can "call" a module that is already available for this specific process and use just a few lines of program code. Therefore, your script will be executed much more quickly as it'll be smaller. Employing modules will also make the script much easier to modify considering that you'll have to go through much less program code. If you wish to use Perl on your site, you have to make sure that the needed modules are available on your server.
