Perl is a well-liked scripting language that is designed to make different web-oriented applications, including CGI scripts. Among the attributes which differentiate it from alternative programming languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl code that complete predefined jobs and they're commonly accepted. In simple terms, as an alternative to generating tailor-made program code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in your script, you can "call" a module that is already available for this particular task and use just a few lines of program code. Therefore, your script shall be executed more quickly because it is much smaller. Using modules will also make the script much easier to edit due to the fact that you'll need to go through a smaller amount of program code. In case you want to use Perl on your site, you need to make sure that the necessary modules are present on the server.
