Perl is a well-known scripting language that is which is used to create various web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. Among the features that distinguish it from many other programming languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl program code which do predefined tasks and they are commonly accepted. Basically, instead of creating custom-made code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in your script, you can "call" some module that already exists for this specific job and use only a few lines of program code. As a result, your script will be executed quicker as it is much smaller. Employing modules will also make the script simpler to modify considering that you'll need to go through much less program code. If you'd like to use Perl on your site, you need to make sure that the required modules are available on the server.
