Perl is a preferred scripting language that is that is used to create different web-oriented apps, which includes CGI scripts. One of the characteristics that distinguish it from various other languages is the use of modules - batches of Perl program code that complete predefined jobs and they're universally accepted. Basically, as an alternative to writing custom program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in your script, you will be able to "call" some module that is already available for this specific process and use just a couple of lines of program code. Therefore, your script shall be executed much more quickly because it will be smaller. Employing modules will, in addition make a script easier to modify considering that you will have to search through a smaller amount of program code. If you wish to use Perl on your site, you have to make sure that the required modules can be found on your server.
