Perl is a very popular scripting language which is employed to build different web-oriented apps, which includes CGI scripts. Among the options that distinguish it from many other languages is the usage of modules - batches of Perl program code which do predefined tasks and they are widely accepted. In simple terms, as an alternative to writing custom code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in the script, you'll be able to "call" a module that already exists for this particular task and use just several lines of code. Due to this, your script will be executed quicker since it will be smaller. Employing modules will, in addition make your script much easier to edit due to the fact that you'll have to go through a smaller amount of code. In case you'd like to use Perl on your website, you have to ensure that the required modules are available on your server.
