Perl is a very popular scripting language that's that is used to create various web-oriented apps, which includes CGI scripts. Among the features which distinguish it from other programming languages is the usage of modules - parts of Perl code which do predefined tasks and they're universally accepted. Basically, as an alternative to creating custom-made program code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in the script, you will be able to "call" a module which already exists for this particular job and use only several lines of program code. Because of this, your script shall be executed more quickly because it will be much smaller. Employing modules will also make a script much easier to edit as you will have to search through much less code. If you intend to use Perl on your site, you should ensure that the needed modules can be found on the server.
