Perl is a well-known scripting language that is which is used to create various web-oriented apps, which includes CGI scripts. One of the attributes which distinguish it from many other languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl program code which complete predefined tasks and they are commonly accepted. In simple terms, rather than creating tailor-made program code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in the script, you're able to "call" some module that is already available for this particular task and use just several lines of code. In consequence, your script will be executed more quickly as it will be smaller. Using modules will additionally make the script easier to edit considering that you'll need to search through a smaller amount of program code. If you want to use Perl on your website, you need to ensure that the needed modules are present on the server.
