Perl is a very popular scripting language which is employed to make different web-oriented applications, such as CGI scripts. One of the attributes which differentiate it from various other programming languages is the usage of modules - parts of Perl program code that complete predefined tasks and they are commonly accepted. Basically, as an alternative to writing custom code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in your script, you're able to "call" some module that already exists for this specific task and use only several lines of program code. Due to this, your script will be executed much more quickly as it'll be much smaller. Employing modules will additionally make the script much easier to modify since you will need to go through a smaller amount of program code. If you would like to use Perl on your site, you need to ensure that the needed modules can be found on the server.
