Perl is a very popular scripting language which is designed to make various web-oriented apps, such as CGI scripts. Among the features which distinguish it from alternative programming languages is the usage of modules - parts of Perl program code that execute predefined jobs and they're commonly accepted. In simple terms, instead of writing tailor-made program code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you will be able to "call" a module that already exists for this specific process and use just several lines of code. Because of this, your script will be executed quicker because it will be smaller. Employing modules will, in addition make the script simpler to modify considering that you'll need to browse through much less program code. In case you wish to use Perl on your site, you should ensure that the needed modules are available on the server.
