Perl is a well-known scripting language that is used to make different web-oriented applications, including CGI scripts. Among the options which differentiate it from many other languages is the usage of modules - parts of Perl code that execute predefined tasks and they are widely accepted. Basically, rather than generating tailor-made program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code inside your script, you're able to "call" a module that is already available for this particular task and use only a couple of lines of program code. Due to this, your script will be executed faster as it'll be much smaller. Using modules will also make the script easier to modify considering that you'll have to search through much less program code. In case you'd like to use Perl on your site, you need to make sure that the needed modules are available on the server.
