Perl is a preferred scripting language that is that is used to create various web-oriented applications, including CGI scripts. One of the features which distinguish it from many other languages is the employment of modules - parts of Perl code which perform predefined jobs and they are widely accepted. In simple terms, as an alternative to creating tailor-made code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in the script, you can "call" a module which already exists for this particular task and use only a couple of lines of code. Therefore, your script shall be executed faster because it will be much smaller. Employing modules will also make the script much easier to change because you will need to browse through much less code. If you'd like to use Perl on your website, you should ensure that the required modules are available on your server.
