Perl is a well-known scripting language that's which is used to build various web-oriented applications, such as CGI scripts. One of the characteristics that differentiate it from other programming languages is the usage of modules - parts of Perl program code that execute predefined tasks and they are universally accepted. Basically, as an alternative to generating custom program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you're able to "call" some module which is already available for this specific process and use just several lines of program code. Due to this, your script will be executed much more rapidly because it'll be smaller. Using modules will, in addition make the script much easier to change due to the fact that you'll have to search through a smaller amount of program code. If you intend to use Perl on your site, you need to make sure that the needed modules can be found on the server.
