Perl is a preferred scripting language that is that is used to build different web-oriented apps, including CGI scripts. One of the characteristics that 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 creating tailor-made code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you are able to "call" some module that is already available for this specific job and use only a couple of lines of program code. Consequently, your script shall be executed quicker since it will be much smaller. Using modules will, in addition make your script much easier to edit as you'll have to browse through much less program code. In case you would like to use Perl on your site, you have to ensure that the required modules are available on your server.
