Perl is a well-liked scripting language that's which is used to make various web-oriented applications, including CGI scripts. One of the characteristics which differentiate it from other languages is the usage of modules - batches of Perl program code which do predefined jobs and they're universally accepted. Basically, rather than generating tailor-made program code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in your script, you'll be able to "call" some module which already exists for this particular job and use just a few lines of code. As a result, your script shall be executed faster as it is much smaller. Employing modules will also make a script easier to change as you will have to browse through much less program code. In case you wish to use Perl on your website, you have to ensure that the needed modules are available on the server.
