Perl is a preferred scripting language that is employed to build various web-oriented apps, such as CGI scripts. One of the attributes that differentiate it from other programming languages is the usage of modules - parts of Perl program code that perform predefined jobs and they're commonly accepted. Basically, as an alternative to generating custom-made program code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in your script, you are able to "call" some module that is already available for this particular job and use only a couple of lines of code. Therefore, your script shall be executed faster since it is much smaller. Using modules will, in addition make a script simpler to change since you'll need to search through much less code. In case you want to use Perl on your site, you have to make sure that the necessary modules are available on the server.
