Perl is a very popular scripting language which is employed to build various web-oriented apps, which includes CGI scripts. One of the features that distinguish it from various other languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl program code which perform predefined jobs and they're widely accepted. Basically, as an alternative to writing custom program code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you're able to "call" a module that already exists for this particular task and use only several lines of code. Due to this fact, your script shall be executed much more rapidly because it is smaller. Using modules will, in addition make a script simpler to modify as you will need to search through much less program code. In case you want to use Perl on your website, you should make sure that the mandatory modules can be found on the server.
