Perl is a very popular scripting language that is used to make various web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. One of the attributes which differentiate it from other programming languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl code that perform predefined jobs and they're widely accepted. Basically, as an alternative to generating custom program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in your script, you are able to "call" a module which is already available for this specific job and use just several lines of program code. Consequently, your script shall be executed a lot quicker because it is much smaller. Employing modules will, in addition make your script simpler to change since you will have to browse through a smaller amount of program code. If you wish to use Perl on your website, you have to make sure that the required modules can be found on the server.
