Perl is a very popular scripting language that's that is used to create various web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. Among the options that distinguish it from various other programming languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl program code which perform predefined tasks and they're commonly accepted. In simple terms, instead of creating custom program code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in your script, you can "call" a module which already exists for this specific process and use just a few lines of program code. As a result, your script shall be executed a lot faster since it is much smaller. Employing modules will additionally make your script easier to modify since you will have to browse through a smaller amount of program code. In case you intend to use Perl on your site, you need to ensure that the mandatory modules are available on the server.
