Perl is a well-liked scripting language that's employed to make various web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. One of the attributes that distinguish it from various other programming languages is the employment of modules - parts of Perl program code that do predefined jobs and they are universally accepted. Basically, rather than generating tailor-made code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you can "call" a module which is already available for this particular job and use just a few lines of code. Consequently, your script shall be executed quicker since it will be much smaller. Using modules will also make a script much easier to modify because you will have to search through a smaller amount of program code. If you want to use Perl on your site, you should make sure that the needed modules are available on the server.
