Perl is a popular scripting language which is designed to build various web-oriented apps, including CGI scripts. Among the attributes which distinguish it from other languages is the usage of modules - parts of Perl code which complete predefined jobs and they're universally accepted. Basically, as an alternative to generating custom program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in the script, you are able to "call" some module that is already available for this particular task and use only a couple of lines of code. Therefore, your script shall be executed much more quickly as it will be much smaller. Employing modules will additionally make a script much easier to modify as you will need to browse through much less code. In case you want to use Perl on your website, you have to make sure that the required modules are available on the server.
