Perl is a popular scripting language that's which is used to build various web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. One of the options which distinguish it from other programming languages is the use of modules - batches of Perl code which execute predefined tasks and they're commonly accepted. Basically, as an alternative to writing tailor-made program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code inside your script, you'll be able to "call" some module which already exists for this particular process and use just a few lines of program code. As a result, your script will be executed much more rapidly as it will be smaller. Using modules will additionally make a script much easier to edit due to the fact that you'll have to browse through much less program code. If you would like to use Perl on your site, you should ensure that the needed modules can be found on your server.
