Perl is a well-liked scripting language that is used to make various web-oriented apps, including CGI scripts. Among the attributes which distinguish it from many other languages is the usage of modules - batches of Perl code which execute predefined tasks and they're widely accepted. Basically, as an alternative to writing custom-made program code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in your script, you're able to "call" a module that already exists for this particular job and use just a couple of lines of program code. In consequence, your script will be executed much more rapidly as it'll be much smaller. Using modules will additionally make a script easier to modify because you'll need to search through much less code. If you'd like to use Perl on your website, you need to make sure that the needed modules are present on the server.
