Perl is a very popular scripting language that's designed to make different web-oriented applications, including CGI scripts. One of the attributes which distinguish it from many other languages is the usage of modules - batches of Perl program code which execute predefined tasks and they're widely accepted. In simple terms, instead of writing custom code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in the script, you can "call" some module which is already available for this specific task and use only a couple of lines of code. Thus, your script shall be executed a lot quicker since it will be smaller. Employing modules will additionally make a script simpler to modify considering that you'll have to search through a smaller amount of code. In case you intend to use Perl on your website, you need to ensure that the necessary modules are present on the server.
