Perl is a very popular scripting language that is that is used to build different web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. Among the options which distinguish it from other languages is the usage of modules - parts of Perl code that complete predefined tasks and they are universally accepted. In simple terms, rather than generating custom-made program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code inside your script, you'll be able to "call" a module which is already available for this specific job and use only a couple of lines of program code. Consequently, your script shall be executed a lot faster because it will be smaller. Using modules will, in addition make the script easier to edit due to the fact that you will have to go through a smaller amount of code. If you want to use Perl on your site, you have to ensure that the mandatory modules can be found on your server.
