Perl is a very popular scripting language that is used to build various web-oriented applications, including CGI scripts. Among the features which distinguish it from alternative programming languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl program code that complete predefined tasks and they are widely accepted. In simple terms, as an alternative to generating tailor-made program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code inside your script, you can "call" some module that already exists for this specific process and use only a few lines of code. Due to this fact, your script shall be executed more quickly since it will be smaller. Employing modules will additionally make the script simpler to change considering that you'll have to go through a smaller amount of program code. If you want to use Perl on your site, you have to make sure that the required modules are available on your server.
