Perl is a very popular scripting language that's employed to make various web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. Among the characteristics which distinguish it from many other languages is the employment of modules - batches of Perl program code that complete predefined jobs and they are commonly accepted. In simple terms, rather than generating custom program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you are able to "call" some module which already exists for this particular task and use only a few lines of code. Therefore, your script shall be executed faster because it will be smaller. Using modules will, in addition make the script much easier to edit due to the fact that you will need to search through a smaller amount of code. In case you wish to use Perl on your site, you have to make sure that the required modules are present on your server.
