Perl is a popular scripting language which is that is used to make different web-oriented apps, which includes CGI scripts. Among the attributes which distinguish it from other programming languages is the employment of modules - batches of Perl code that perform predefined jobs and they're commonly accepted. Basically, instead of writing tailor-made program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in the script, you can "call" some module that is already available for this particular job and use just a couple of lines of code. Consequently, your script shall be executed a lot faster as it will be smaller. Using modules will, in addition make your script simpler to modify since you'll need to browse through a smaller amount of code. If you'd like to use Perl on your website, you should ensure that the necessary modules are present on the server.
