Perl is a preferred scripting language that is designed to make various web-oriented applications, including CGI scripts. One of the features which differentiate it from alternative languages is the employment of modules - parts of Perl code which complete predefined tasks and they are widely accepted. In simple terms, as an alternative to writing custom-made program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in your script, you can "call" some module which already exists for this particular job and use just several lines of program code. Thus, your script shall be executed much more rapidly because it'll be much smaller. Employing modules will additionally make a script simpler to change considering that you will need to browse through a smaller amount of code. If you want to use Perl on your website, you need to ensure that the mandatory modules are available on your server.
