Perl is a very popular scripting language that is designed to create various web-oriented apps, such as CGI scripts. Among the options that differentiate it from other programming languages is the usage of modules - parts of Perl program code that complete predefined jobs and they're commonly accepted. Basically, instead of writing tailor-made code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you can "call" a module that is already available for this particular task and use only a few lines of program code. Due to this, your script shall be executed much more quickly as it'll be smaller. Employing modules will also make a script much easier to edit because you'll need to search through a smaller amount of code. In case you wish to use Perl on your website, you should make sure that the necessary modules can be found on your server.
