Perl is a very popular scripting language that is which is used to build different web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. Among the features which differentiate it from other languages is the employment of modules - batches of Perl code that do predefined jobs and they're widely accepted. In simple terms, rather than generating custom-made program code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in the script, you will be able to "call" some module which is already available for this particular job and use just several lines of code. Due to this, your script will be executed more rapidly since it will be smaller. Employing modules will, in addition make the script easier to change due to the fact that you'll have to search through much less program code. In case you want to use Perl on your site, you have to ensure that the needed modules are available on your server.
