Perl is a popular scripting language which is used to build different web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. Among the characteristics that differentiate it from alternative programming languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl code which execute predefined jobs and they're commonly accepted. Basically, rather than generating custom-made code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in your script, you are able to "call" a module that is already available for this specific process and use only a couple of lines of program code. Due to this fact, your script shall be executed much more rapidly as it'll be smaller. Using modules will additionally make the script simpler to modify because you'll need to search through a smaller amount of code. In case you wish to use Perl on your site, you have to make sure that the mandatory modules are present on the server.
