Perl is a popular scripting language which is designed to create various web-oriented apps, which includes CGI scripts. One of the features which distinguish it from alternative programming languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl program code that complete predefined tasks and they're widely accepted. Basically, rather than writing custom-made code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in the script, you'll be able to "call" some module that already exists for this specific task and use only several lines of code. As a result, your script will be executed a lot faster because it'll be much smaller. Employing modules will additionally make your script simpler to modify because you will have to go through much less code. In case you intend to use Perl on your website, you should make sure that the mandatory modules are present on the server.
