Perl is a very popular scripting language that's designed to create different web-oriented apps, including CGI scripts. Among the options that distinguish it from various other programming languages is the usage of modules - batches of Perl code that execute predefined jobs and they're commonly accepted. In simple terms, as an alternative to creating custom program 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 particular job and use just a few lines of program code. This way, your script shall be executed more quickly since it is much smaller. Employing modules will additionally make your script much easier to edit due to the fact that you will have to go through a smaller amount of program code. If you intend to use Perl on your site, you should ensure that the required modules can be found on your server.
