Perl is a well-liked scripting language which is designed to create various web-oriented apps, such as CGI scripts. Among the options which distinguish it from alternative languages is the employment of modules - batches of Perl program code that complete predefined tasks and they are universally accepted. Basically, rather than generating custom code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in your script, you can "call" a module which is already available for this specific task and use only a couple of lines of program code. Thus, your script shall be executed much more rapidly since it will be much smaller. Using modules will additionally make the script easier to change since you will have to go through much less code. If you want to use Perl on your website, you have to ensure that the needed modules can be found on the server.
