Perl is a popular scripting language that is employed to create different web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. One of the features that differentiate it from alternative programming languages is the usage of modules - batches of Perl code that do predefined tasks and they are commonly accepted. Basically, instead of generating custom-made code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in your script, you will be able to "call" some module that already exists for this particular task and use just a few lines of program code. Because of this, your script will be executed more rapidly as it'll be much smaller. Employing modules will additionally make your script simpler to change considering that you will need to search through much less program code. If you'd like to use Perl on your website, you have to make sure that the needed modules can be found on the server.
