Perl is a very popular scripting language that is designed to make different web-oriented applications, such as CGI scripts. Among the options which distinguish it from various other languages is the usage of modules - batches of Perl code which perform predefined tasks and they are widely accepted. Basically, instead of generating custom-made program code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in the script, you're able to "call" a module which already exists for this particular job and use just a couple of lines of program code. In consequence, your script shall be executed a lot faster as it'll be smaller. Employing modules will also make your script easier to edit since you'll have to go through a smaller amount of code. If you intend to use Perl on your website, you should make sure that the needed modules can be found on the server.
