Perl is a well-liked scripting language that is used to build various web-oriented apps, such as CGI scripts. One of the options which distinguish it from other programming languages is the employment of modules - parts of Perl program code which complete predefined jobs and they're commonly accepted. Basically, as an alternative to generating tailor-made code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in the script, you can "call" some module that already exists for this specific task and use just several lines of code. In consequence, your script will be executed a lot faster because it will be much smaller. Using modules will, in addition make a script much easier to modify since you'll need to browse through much less code. In case you'd like to use Perl on your site, you have to ensure that the required modules are available on the server.
