Perl is a popular scripting language which is which is used to make different web-oriented apps, which includes CGI scripts. Among the attributes which differentiate it from other programming languages is the employment of modules - parts of Perl code which complete predefined jobs and they are widely accepted. Basically, as an alternative to writing tailor-made code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in the script, you are able to "call" a module which already exists for this particular task and use just several lines of code. As a result, your script shall be executed a lot quicker since it'll be smaller. Using modules will, in addition make the script much easier to change considering that you'll need to go through a smaller amount of code. If you want to use Perl on your site, you have to make sure that the necessary modules are present on the server.
