Perl is a popular scripting language which is designed to make various web-oriented apps, such as CGI scripts. One of the characteristics that distinguish it from other programming languages is the employment of modules - parts of Perl code which complete predefined jobs and they're universally accepted. Basically, rather than writing tailor-made program code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in the script, you are able to "call" a module which is already available for this particular task and use just several lines of code. Due to this, your script will be executed a lot quicker since it will be much smaller. Employing modules will, in addition make the script easier to change as you'll need to search through much less program code. If you intend to use Perl on your website, you should ensure that the required modules can be found on the server.
