Perl is a popular scripting language that is used to create different web-oriented apps, which includes CGI scripts. One of the attributes that differentiate it from alternative programming languages is the usage of modules - batches of Perl program code which perform predefined tasks and they're widely accepted. In simple terms, rather than generating custom code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in the script, you're able to "call" a module that already exists for this specific job and use only a few lines of code. Due to this fact, your script will be executed a lot faster because it'll be much smaller. Employing modules will, in addition make a script much easier to edit since you will need to search through much less code. If you would like to use Perl on your website, you need to make sure that the needed modules are present on the server.
