Perl is a popular scripting language which is employed to create various web-oriented applications, including CGI scripts. Among the options that differentiate it from alternative languages is the usage of modules - parts of Perl code that do predefined jobs and they are commonly accepted. In simple terms, as an alternative to writing custom-made program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you're able to "call" some module that is already available for this specific process and use only a couple of lines of code. Consequently, your script will be executed more quickly because it is smaller. Using modules will, in addition make your script simpler to change as you will need to search through much less code. In case you intend to use Perl on your site, you need to make sure that the needed modules can be found on your server.
