Perl is a very popular scripting language which is that is used to build different web-oriented apps, which includes CGI scripts. One of the characteristics which distinguish it from various other programming languages is the usage of modules - parts of Perl program code which complete predefined tasks and they are universally accepted. Basically, rather than generating custom-made program code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you are able to "call" some module which is already available for this specific task and use only a few lines of code. Therefore, your script will be executed a lot faster since it is smaller. Employing modules will additionally make your script simpler to change due to the fact that you will need to search through a smaller amount of code. In case you would like to use Perl on your site, you have to make sure that the necessary modules are available on the server.
