Perl is a preferred scripting language that is employed to build various web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. Among the characteristics that differentiate it from alternative languages is the employment of modules - parts of Perl code which complete predefined tasks and they're universally accepted. In simple terms, as an alternative to generating custom program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in the script, you're able to "call" some module which is already available for this particular job and use only several lines of code. As a result, your script shall be executed much more quickly as it is much smaller. Using modules will additionally make your script much easier to change due to the fact that you'll need to browse through a smaller amount of program code. In case you want to use Perl on your site, you need to make sure that the mandatory modules are available on your server.
