Perl is a preferred scripting language that is that is used to create various web-oriented applications, such as CGI scripts. One of the characteristics that distinguish it from alternative languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl code that perform predefined tasks and they're widely accepted. Basically, as an alternative to generating tailor-made program code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in your script, you can "call" some module which already exists for this specific task and use just a few lines of code. This way, your script shall be executed much more rapidly since it is much smaller. Employing modules will, in addition make the script much easier to change as you will need to go through much less program code. In case you would like to use Perl on your site, you have to make sure that the needed modules can be found on your server.
